Steamboat water districts hold off on restrictions for now

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Steamboat Springs area water districts have decided not to implement mandatory Stage 2 water restrictions following a mostly cool and wet April, according to a news release from the city of Steamboat Springs.

As of Wednesday, May 1, the Tower Site on Buffalo Pass was reporting 131 inches of snow and a snow water equivalent of 53.6 inches, which is 115% of average. Overall, snowpack in the Yampa and White river basins is 107% of average.

“While the area has seen important rain and snow, we still need everyone to do their part, even without restrictions in place, to conserve water,” Public Works Director Jon Snyder said. “We’ll continue to monitor conditions and storage levels as we move into summer and will not hesitate to implement mandatory restrictions if required.”
