A free, 75-minute sprinkler evaluation helps you save water by using your sprinkler system more effectively. This year, we're teaming up with Resource Central to offer sprinkler evaluations. As the saying goes, new look – same great service. The 2024 season begins in June.

STEP 1: Find your Utilities account number
Homeowners and renters who receive their water from Fort Collins Utilities are eligible (pink area on the map below). Fort Collins-Loveland Water District (yellow area) is also partnering with Resource Central and can be selected as a water service provider at the same sign up link in step 2. ELCO customers (purple area), please check with your water provider to learn about their offerings. Find your water provider on the water service map.

STEP 2: Join the waitlist
Sign up below or by calling 303-999-3824. Resource Central will reach out to set up your appointment when the schedule opens so you can be among the first to receive an evaluation.

In addition, they’ll check the rate and distribution of water from your sprinklers to create a custom watering schedule for you.
