  2. Fall is a few days away and Denver Water’s summer watering program ends on October 1.


    Even though the watering program deadline is quickly approaching, Bow Mar is still encouraging its customers to follow the restrictions that were set forth for Summer.


    • Lawn watering is limited to no more than three days per week, selected at customer’s discretion, and only as much as the landscape needs.
    • No watering from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
    • Applying more water than is reasonably necessary to establish and maintain a healthy landscape is not allowed.
    • No watering landscaped areas during rain or high wind.
    • Applying water intended for irrigation to an impervious surface, such as a street, parking lot, alley, sidewalk or driveway is prohibited.
    • Allowing water to pool or flow across the ground or into any drainage way, such as gutters, streets, alleys or storm drains, is prohibited.
    • Customers are required to repair leaking or damaged irrigation components within 10 days after notice.


    The utility’s Web site ( has conservation tips, rebates, irrigation calculators and many more tools for saving water outdoors, including suggested watering times.


    By using only the water they need, District customers can maximize supply during the hottest months of summer. A long-term commitment to efficient water use will also help postpone or avoid spending more money on other supply options and support the preservation of Colorado’s natural environment.
