The City's Water Conservation Master Plan includes information on the voluntary water conservation program and incentives. Irrigation tips and frequently asked questions are also available.
EPA Watersense Tip:
Run your dishwasher only when it's full. Don't pre-rinse dishes - tests show pre-rinsing doesn't improve dishwasher cleaning, and you'll save as much as 20 gallons of water per load. When you buy a new dishwasher, look for one that saves water. Water-efficient models use only about only about 4 gallons per wash. More about using water wisely.
Fix A Leak
The average American home leaks more than 10,000 gallons of water per year. Check your fixtures and stop leaks, in your home or remind your landlord. If you're shopping for new fixtures or plumbing, look for the WaterSense label.
Avoiding runoff pollution and better management helps sustain the quality of streams, lakes and waterways
The City has developed efforts focused on protecting, managing and improving the quality of the City’s water sources so that they will continue to support water supply, recreation, agriculture, aquatic life
and other public uses. Read more about the efforts the City has made to manage our watershed.
Water run off can include residue from fertilizer, parking lot spills, and other pollutants, which ends up in the creeks and streams, affecting downstream aquatic life and water supply for others.
Stormwater Quality - Urban Run Off
The City of Longmont participates in The Keep it Clean Partnership (KICP), a collaborative effort of Colorado communities in the Boulder and St. Vrain watersheds to protect water quality. The KICP focuses on developing programs that meet the requirements of federal, state and municipal stormwater regulations. Read about the Stormwater Quality Program.
