Water Restrictions Start in Fort Collins

I just know it! My lawn is going to die this summer.  Water restrictions started yesterday in Fort Collins.

Lawn watering in the city is allowed two days per week:

  •  even residential addresses on Thursday and Sunday
  • odd residential addresses on Wednesday and Saturday
  • commercial/businesses, multi-family and HOAs on Tuesday and Friday.


Watering flowers, trees, shrubs and vegetable gardens will not be restricted, but a hose shut-off nozzle is recommended.


  • No watering between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. or on Mondays (even with a permit)
  • Car washing: shut-off nozzle and bucket required
  • Impervious surfaces: washing with water not allowed (e.g., driveways, sidewalks)

First violations will receive a written warning and information about the water restrictions. Second and following violations are subject to a minimum fine of $50 each ($250 for non-residential), up to a maximum fine of $1,000 per violation.

Restrictions also began yesterday in Denver, Colorado Springs, Castle Rock, Northglenn, Parker, and Thornton. Loveland is also considering water restrictions this year.
