Outdoor Water Restrictions at Cemeteries
City Manager Darin Atteberry signed a declaration and order for mandatory action level IV water restrictions on lawn watering and other outdoor water uses in order to avoid a water shortage due to the ongoing drought conditions, Cameron Peak fire, and infrastructure repairs known as the Horsetooth Outlet Project (HOP).
Exceptions to this declaration allow for water use on athletic/active fields for health and safety purposes as well as raw (untreated) and well water customers, as this water is not affected by HOP.
Examples of properties that fall under these exceptions include public parks, municipal golf courses, two City cemeteries, The Gardens on Spring Creek, Colorado State University, and schools, though all are working together to save water.
The Parks Department will continue to water parks, golf courses, and cemeteries with raw water to protect the green infrastructure in the parks system, as these are valuable public assets. Promoting the growth of the turf prevents it from deteriorating from overuse. Play at sites with potable water has been intentionally restricted, with exceptions being obtained for watering of sports fields at those locations. If watering does not continue in some capacity on sites that are still being used by the public, the cost and resource needs for future restoration efforts could become unmanageable.
