showerheadWater conservation is a big issue in Northern Colorado and the City of Greeley is looking to help residents use less water in their showers by holding a showerhead exchange on August 17th and August 21st, 2013.

Read on to find out where you need to go and what you need to bring to upgrade your shower.

The City of Greeley Water Conservation program asks residents to bring old showerheads to the water conservation booth at the Greeley Farmer’s Market (At the Historic Union Pacific Depot at 902 7th Avenue) and, in exchange, they will give you a high functioning EPA WaterSense labeled showerhead.

  • Saturday, August 17 from 7:30AM to Noon
  • Wednesday, August 21 from 3:00PM to 6:00PM

(To get the free showerhead, you must get your water from the City of Greeley Water & Sewer Department. Please bring a water bill or Driver’s License to the exchange to prove residency.)

Why would you want one of these showerheads?  According to the City of Greeley:

  • A low-flow showerhead can save a family more than 2,900 gallons of water each year
  • It can save enough electricity to power a family's home for 13 days
  • It can reduce a home's annual water and energy costs by more than $70 dollars
