North Metro Water Suppliers Urge Residents to Implement Water Reduction Actions

North Metro, Boulder County and the City and County of Broomfield water suppliers, including the Left Hand Water District, City of Boulder, City of Lafayette, City of Longmont, Town of Erie, City of Louisville, City of Arvada, Northglenn, Town of Superior, City of Thornton and Westminster are urging residents to consider ways to reduce water use at their home or business as spring and summer approach.

Despite the heavy snow that hit the front range in March, mountain snowpack is still below average in some areas, and streamflow levels are expected to be low-to-average in the upcoming season. As of March 23, 2021, dry conditions still cover 100% of the state with 62% of the state in severe, extreme, or exceptional drought categories, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor. The low-to-average levels of snowpack, coupled with 2020 being a record hot, dry year with wildfires that affected critical watershed areas has sent many North Metro areas into Drought Watch, where water conditions are closely monitored to make determinations on if water restrictions will be necessary.

All water customers in the North Metro area are encouraged to find ways to save water now to help prevent drought restrictions and maintain water supply throughout the summer. Please see the full release for recommendations and further information.
