PAGOSA AREA WATER AND SANITATION DISTRICT

Explanation of LEVEL 1 drought stage water use restrictions

The current drought situation has placed a strain of the water supply.
It is the goal of the District to reduce community water consumption by 10 to 20% so as to extend the usability of the existing water supply.
The following water use restrictions are mandatory.
Watering Days: Irrigation of lawns, trees, shrubs, vegetables, and flowers will be restricted to between the hours of 6:00 pm and 9:00 am. The intent of these watering hours is to allow flexibility for customers who work either late or early in the day. Restaurants are to serve water to customers only when requested. Hotels shall only change bedding and wash towels during client turnover or upon request.
Water Use Reduction Measures
• Continue all measures initiated in the Voluntary Water Conservation Level.
• No watering between the daylight hours of 9:00 am and 6:00 pm on any day.
• Gardens (both edible and ornamental) may be watered with a hand-held hose or low-volume drip irrigation on any day.
• Restaurants shall serve water only at the request of customers.
• Hotels are shall only change bed linens and towels during client turnover or upon client request.
$$$: Standard rate structure will not be modified.
