Water is a valuable resource that we often take for granted. Here in Severance, we are living at the edge of what was once called the Great American Desert. Slightly more than half of all the water that we use is not for drinking, cooking, or bathing, but instead it is used outside of our houses for our yards and recreation. This is why we must be conscious of our outdoor water usage, and we must take measures to conserve this precious resource. The town has long-range plans to preserve and conserve our water resources now and in the future.
The town is currently working on a Water Conservation Plan that will be approved by the Colorado Water Conservation Board. This plan will be implemented and includes a wide variety of water conservation measures to assist all of us in conserving the town’s water supply. The 2017 Draft Water Conservation Plan can be found below.
