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.

In April 2020, we completed the review and update of the Water Shortage Action Plan to ensure our customers are prepared and we have the best response possible to improve our resiliency and limit longer-term water shortages.

Thank you to those that provided input during the update process! We will review the Water Shortage Action Plan again in 4 to 5 years. Please let us know your concerns about future water shortages, water restrictions and planning for a sustainable water future.

  • Utilities will present an updated Water Shortage Response Plan to the City Council on March 17, 2020. We've met with about 800 different customers and received over 1,000 survey responses over the last year and feel the changes align with what we've heard. What about you? How will you prepare for the next water shortage?

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    While some water use activities consume relatively low amounts of water, during greater shortages, every drop counts. Please take this quick survey to help us evaluate whether we should restrict these uses during greater water shortages.
