The City of Aspen Stage 2 Water Shortage Restrictions went into effect September 1 for all City utility customers. The goal of Stage 2 is to reduce City of Aspen total water use by 15-20% over current use. City Council enacted the Water Shortage ordinance just after the US Drought Monitor declared Pitkin County to be in “extreme drought conditions” on August 18. In addition, local rivers are running at 40-70% of median flows.
All the City’s water supply is dependent on streams so the community’s collective actions will help preserve our shared water supply over the dry late summer and fall. Thank you in advance for your efforts to curb your water use and to conserve our shared resource.
Below are the restrictions that will be in place for residents, commercial users, and the City of Aspen:
