Outdoor watering limited to 3 times per week in Steamboat

The city of Steamboat Springs and Mt. Werner Water and Sanitation District are reminding homeowners and property managers that outdoor watering is limited to three times per week.

The schedule was implemented three years ago as a means to conserve water in the Yampa Valley, which remains a priority despite a heavy snow year.

 “A big winter doesn’t bring changes to our watering schedule,” said Michelle Carr, Distribution & Collection Manager. “While we’re fortunate to live where we do, our water is not an unlimited resource. Every drop counts so every step to conserve it ensures it lasts for all of us.” 

Potable water used for watering is permitted between 6 p.m. and 10 a.m. and watering days are based on the last number (even or odd) of one’s address.

Even addresses can water on Sunday, Tuesday and Friday. Odd addresses can water on Monday, Thursday and Saturday. No watering is allowed on Wednesday.
