Water Shortage Response Planning

Have you ever thought about how a water shortage could impact you and/or your business?

Fort Collins Utilities plans for each year’s water supplies and projected use very conservatively; however, severe drought and other events outside of Utilities’ control happen. When we’re faced with a water shortage, Utilities enacts water use restrictions in accordance with the Water Supply Shortage Response Plan.

We’re reviewing the response plan to ensure our customers are prepared and we have the best response possible to improve our resiliency and limit longer-term water shortages.

We want your input! Please let us know your concerns about future water shortages, water restrictions and planning for a sustainable water future.
