Denver watering rules
May 1st marked the first day of Denver Water’s annual watering rules. This doesn’t mean it’s time to start watering your landscape, especially with all the rain we received, but with the risk for freezing night-time temperatures diminishing, and increasing temperatures right around the corner, many people are preparing their landscapes for summer. Fortunately, Denver’s supply is in good shape heading into runoff season so there are no added drought-related watering restrictions in place this year. But, you never know when that next dry period will come so it’s vital that the Denver metro area continues to use only what they need.
