Westminster implements voluntary water restrictions
(May 02, 2013)
The City of Westminster depends heavily on mountain snow runoff for a majority of its water supply.
Recent spring snowstorms have improved the current water supply, however, a very hot and dry 2012 resulted in lower than average water storage in Standley Lake, which has prompted the city to implement voluntary water restrictions beginning May 1, 2013, to ensure and extend water supplies.
Westminster water customers are requested to follow a 2-day-a-week watering schedule with no watering between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.
These voluntary restrictions will save water, increasing Westminster’s water availability should a drought occur in future years.
Westminster will continue to monitor conditions and respond as needed should conditions change.
The following watering schedule is recommended:
| Customer Type
|| Watering Days
| Single family and duplex homes with even numbered addresses
|| Sunday and Thursday
| Single family and duplex homes with odd numbered addresses
|| Saturday and Wednesday
| All others including multifamily and commercial customers
|| Tuesday and Friday
