Glenwood Springs cuts lawn watering to three hours every other day

Due to worsening drought conditions, the city of Glenwood Springs has imposed more stringent watering restrictions, according to city manager Mike Copp.

Watering will now be limited to every other day based on odd and even address numbers. Addresses ending in odd numbers will start watering on odd-numbered days only, starting Wednesday, Aug. 21, and even numbered addresses will start on Thursday, Aug. 22.

Watering times will remain from 6 p.m. to 8 a.m..

However total watering time during that period will be limited to three hours per household. Residents with sprinkler systems are encouraged to use water during non-peak hours, from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.

All new landscaping will need to be reviewed and approved by the Community Development Department prior to planting, since new landscaping needs more water to become established.

The city will aggressively enforce these new restrictions if necessary. However, the city is confident that the spirit of co-operation that has typified this summer will continue.
