Stage 2 Water Shortage Continues to be in Effect in Aspen

3

The City of Aspen entered a Stage 2 Water Shortage on September 1, 2020 and this remains in effect.  With the US Drought Monitor declaring Pitkin County in both "severe" and "extreme" drought conditions and local rivers running lower than median flows, we as a community must work together to conserve our precious water.  All the City’s water supply is dependent on streams so all of our collective actions will help preserve our water supply over the dry late summer and fall.  There are several restrictions that will be in place which you can find at www.cityofaspen.com/drought.  Three things to know immediately is there will be no washing of sidewalks and other paved areas except for health and safety,  no landscape watering between 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. and only water lawns every other day or less.  Thank you for conserving our shared resource.
