I couldn't keep my lawn alive last year. I am in real trouble this year.  Fort Collins residents will be limited to watering their lawns two days per week under new regulations that go into effect Monday, April 1st.

The water restrictions were based on the uncertainty of water supplies available to the City of Fort Collins due to fire-related water quality issues and supplies impacted by continued drought conditions and low snow-pack.

Restrictions will also apply to car washing and other cleaning activities, but watering trees, shrubs, flowers and vegetables will not be affected. Also, no watering will be allowed between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. or on Mondays.


  • Even residential addresses: Thursday and Sunday
  • Odd residential addresses: Wednesday and Saturday
  • Commercial/businesses, multi-family and HOAs: Tuesday and Friday
