Outside Water Restrictions

Outside water restrictions enacted on August 18, 2020 remain in effect.

Due to the drought and water shortage, the Town of Hotchkiss is implementing water usage restrictions.  


When watering lawns, gardens or any outdoor landscaping we ask all citizens with the odd numbered address to water on odd numbered calendar days and all of the even numbered addresses water on even numbered calendar days.  

We ask that you conserve water in any way possible.  Please be attentive to how and what water is being used for.  

Thank you, we appreciate your consideration and attention to conserving our water resources.
