Water Conservation

Our Water Conservation program is one of the largest and most successful in Colorado. Between 1990 and 2007, universal metering and other conservation programs dropped water demand by more than 20 percent in Greeley. The Conservation Plan estimates an additional eight percent reduction in water use over the next 20 years. ​

The Water Budget

The water budget on your water bill is a guide that shows how much water a moderately careful customer would typically use in a month. It is calculated by using average household size, the lot size of your house, and the weather. If you happen to exceed your budget, your bill will tell you how much money you would’ve saved if you stayed within your budget.

How does it work?Water Budget Graph

Take a look at the graph on your next water bill.

  • Winter water use is based on indoor use. Each customer receives an indoor budget of 6,000 gallons per month which is based on three people living at a residence. If you want to change your persons per household to get a more accurate water budget, please call 970-336-4134 or complete the feedback form below requesting a change in household size.
  • During the growing season, your budget is based on the actual water needs of the lawn. This is based on the area that can be irrigated on your property which is determined by the size of your lot minus the house and visible pavement. Map data of your property is available to see what areas are included in your water budget.

To help you plan, you will see a projected budget for the next month based on historic weather. To stay within budget, always take weather conditions into account when watering your lawn. If you want to monitor your water use more closely, you can request a hand-held electronic water meter. Please call 970-336-4134 to reserve your water monitor. It will be programmed for your home meter and then it will be ready for you to pick it up.
