Mandatory outdoor water restrictions on lawn watering and other outdoor water uses end Tuesday, Nov. 10 for Fort Collins Utilities water customers.
Restrictions helped avoid a water shortage due to the ongoing drought conditions, Cameron Peak Fire and infrastructure repairs known as the Horsetooth Outlet Project (HOP).
We are carefully monitoring the fire and any potential impacts it may have on our water supply infrastructure. We must comply with water quality standards for treated drinking water per the federal Safe Drinking Water Act and state regulations, even in the event of a wildfire, and processes are in place to treat the water supply and adjust water sources when necessary.
If you are behind on your bill due to hardship related to the COVID-19 public health emergency, we encourage you to apply for assistance. Utilities has received CARES Act funding to directly support our customers in need. In addition, please call us at 970-212-2900 to set up a payment plan to avoid falling further behind or having your utilities disconnected.

Critical work at Joe Wright Reservoir – success against the odds
Providing a year of diverse challenges is one way to think of how 2020 impacted the City of Fort Collins and Utilities specifically. In early spring, COVID-19 effectively shut down normal operations across the City as more than half the employees began working remotely and the critical workforce onsite kept the City operating under extensive safety protocols and reduced staffing.
