VOLUNTARY WATER RESTRICTIONS
Even though ELCO’s 2013 water supplies should be sufficient to meet anticipated demands, customers are encouraged to voluntarily limit their water use. On average, 50 percent of the water used in a single-family household is applied to landscaping. Controlling the amount of time sprinklers run and the frequency are easy ways to conserve water. It is recommended to water before 10:00 am and after 6:00 pm to reduce evaporation.
Like other water utilities in the area, ELCO’s raw water is supplied from two sources, Horsetooth Reservoir and the Poudre River. Historically, approximately 90+ percent of ELCO’s raw water has come from Horsetooth Reservoir. In 2013, ELCO again plans to have most of its water delivered out of Horsetooth.
During the next few months, the ELCO Board will be monitoring the District’s raw water supply and customer demands. If conditions warrant greater reductions in water use, ELCO will implement more restrictive measures. ELCO’s response to a water supply shortage will progress in stages. Initially, customers are being asked to voluntarily conserve water. If problems persist, restrictions could be imposed to limit outdoor water use.
Historically, ELCO customers have responded extremely well when asked to voluntarily reduce water use. Because ELCO has access to storage in area reservoirs, most of the water conserved this year will be available for use next year. To increase the availability of water for next year, ELCO customers are encouraged to reduce water use whenever possible.
