☷ Lafayette Colorado - Water conservation tip of the week 13 June 2022

Lafayette , state Colorado
| 12| 2
   
   We would like to ask for your increased efforts to limit outdoor water use to help conserve regional water supplies .
   TIP OF THE WEEK: Don ' t water roads and sidewalks , fix broken sprinkler heads .  
    
   Water lawns , plants and trees - not roads and sidewalks . Check to see if your irrigation heads are broken , tilted , or not set - up properly by scheduling an irrigation assessment . Sweep driveways and sidewalks with a broom instead of spraying with a hose – but please
   not
    down the storm drain or into the street gutter . Use hand - watering , deep root watering , or drip irrigation for trees , shrubs , bushes , perennial beds , annual flowers and vegetable gardens . Always use a shut - off nozzle on your hose when hand - watering plants .
   Concerning residential water use trends in Lafayette
   The City is experiencing concerning trends with residential water demands . Elevated outdoor water use began a full month earlier than in typical years and has continued to escalate over the past two months .
   Snowpack figures are below average again this year and dry soils and sustained evaporative winds are contributing to the reduction of runoff before it can feed the municipal water supply . This reflects yet another challenge in managing regional water supplies in a changing climate .
   Conserving limited regional water supplies can only be addressed as a collective effort .  If conditions do not improve , the City will be implementing additional outdoor water restrictions .
   The following restrictions are in place year - round in Lafayette 
   Violations of Municipal Code Section 120 - 13 are subject to fines .  
   No watering of outdoor landscaping between the hours of 10am and 6pm except:
   Watering by hand with a hose equipped with an automatic shut - off valve
   City - owned facilities: golf course , high traffic parks , and athletic fields
   Commercial agriculture
   No overrun of water onto any area not covered by vegetation such as sidewalks , curbs , driveways , streets , and other paved areas
   No washing of paved areas such as driveways with a hose
   Additional conservation tips and information
   Thank you for joining the front range region in the difficult effort to change water use habits . We can accomplish so much more together . To help this regional effort , the City has compiled some effective conservation tips such as watering only two days per week and letting grass grow longer before mowing . View these
    tips and more information at
