Snowpack

The March blizzard may come to the rescue of lawns along much of Colorado's populous Front Range.

The blizzard helped bring the statewide snowpack to almost one-and-a-half times as much water as was available last year.

The snowpack supplies 80 percent of surface water available for users.

Pueblo may be able to remove mandatory watering restrictions at its meeting tomorrow. Users would be still urged to conserve.

The city of Aurora's utility had expected to ban all lawn watering. But city council members could decide tonight to allow lawn watering once a week.

Denver Water's board will meet Wednesday night to consider its own restrictions on watering.
