No Water Restrictions#
Water restrictions are no longer in effect as of Nov. 10.
Water restrictions began Oct. 1. The community's efforts, combined with advance planning, regional collaborations and temporary backup water pumps, significantly reduced our risk of water shortage as the Horsetooth outlet repairs were made.
We are monitoring water quality and quantity for wildfire impacts and other issues that can arise at any time. Depending on future drought conditions and the extent of impacts from the fires, we will continue to look to the community for help conserving water, when necessary. By working together, we can protect our water and rise to the challenges we may face in the future.
Water restriction status and related updates will be added to this page and the Water Shortage Action Page as they are available.
Fort Collins Utilities’ customers rose to the challenge and decreased water use 35% within the first 24 hours of restrictions and stayed below the 15 million gallon demand since Oct. 14, saving more than 100 million gallons of water when compared to historical averages.
