Drought/snowpack news:

Here’s a report from 9News.com (Blair Shiff) about current conditions (bad). Here’s an excerpt:

Denver Water says because of drought conditions in 2012, Colorado is starting the year with reservoirs only 65 percent full. They would like levels to be at 81 percent. It would take a lot of snow over the next few weeks to make that up, so residents could see restrictions this summer.

“It really will take a lot of big snows to where we have a water supply that really will serve us, so we are talking about what this might mean for customers moving into the spring,” Stacy Chesney with Denver Water said.

No decision has been made, but customers could see mandatory restrictions. They could include only watering certain amounts or on certain days.
