Denver Water to institute watering restrictions on April 1
DENVER -- Beginning April 1, Denver residents will be restricted to watering two days a week, the Denver Board of Water Commissioners announced Thursday. “We’ve never seen conditions like this, and we are concerned about our water supply,” said Jim Lochhead, CEO/manager of Denver Water. “Our reservoirs haven’t been full since July 2011. We need our customers’ help to reduce water use and keep as much water as possible in storage as we move through this year and into the next.”
