Press Release - Efficient Water Use
Cañon City, CO. – As the summer season is here, there is a need to raise awareness of some issues that have come about due to the low levels of snowpack this winter. Many water providers in the state have already reported that there might be a shortage this year in their system. The Cañon City Water Department wishes to share with its customers some ideas of efficient water use that would be helpful to you, the customers, at any time to save money on your water bill.
Drinking water consumption only takes up about 5% of the total water used in a distribution system. Therefore, there is great room for improvement within our own homes and businesses for efficient use of water. Here are just some of the tips that have been proven to work:
1. When you water your lawn, irrigate for longer periods two or three times per week, rather than every day. This allows deep penetration and by watering early in the morning, you avoid excessive evaporation.
For more information on efficient use of water, here are some interesting internet sites that are very helpful:
These sites provide information and give all a better understanding of the water we use every day.
The Cañon City Water Department wants to remind its customers of the need for all of us to be sensible in the use of all our natural resources, especially the water that we use in times of drought. It is our hope that the citizens in our wonderful community be good stewards of our water so that all may have water for use whether it is for domestic, irrigation or recreational purposes so that our natural resources are available for future generations to come. If our water supply becomes too low, the City of Cañon City Council would make the decision regarding mandatory water restrictions. This would be a last resort due to drought conditions.
If you have any questions regarding conservation or any other concerns about your water, please feel free to contact the staff at Cañon City Water Treatment (269-9019) or Cañon City Water Distribution (269-9022) for further information
