Snowpack in the Arkansas River and Upper Colorado River watersheds is near 100% of normal. The runoff from the snow constitutes Pueblo's primary water source. The Water Board will, however, continue to encourage its customers to avoid wasting water.
New water restrictions went into effect in Colorado Springs Tuesday. For residential water users, odd numbered addresses can water Tuesdays and Saturdays. Even numbered addresses can water on Wednesdays and Sundays. Commercial users can water Mondays and Fridays.
Springs Utilities Customers can water up to three hours on the designated days, from Midnight to 9 a.m., or from 6 p.m. to midnight.
