The Council is looking at several ways to conserve water, including incorporating water restrictions year-round rather than just when there is a drought.
Over the past ten years, water has been at the forefront of the Town Council’s discussions regarding Breckenridge’s future. They recognize that rapidly increasing demands and fluctuating supply- especially here in the West - are placing an immense strain on this limited, yet vital resource. Noting that water is essential to the community’s economy, natural environment and quality of life, the Council placed water-related issues in their Goals & Objectives statement.
The Council is committed to preserving the Town’s precious water rights as well as providing leadership on creating a new ‘norm’ for water conservation.
One step is to implement water restrictions year-round that we have previously enacted in times of drought - specifically, prohibiting the use of water to wash driveways, parking lots, and sidewalks. We are trying to understand how you use water, and what ideas you have for conserving this precious commodity.
