From 4 CBS Denver (Matt Kroschel):

Glenwood Springs initiated Level 2 of its Drought Management Plan earlier this week rolling out the call for residents to lower their water usage drastically.

According to officials, stream flows in Grizzly Creek and No Name Creek, the city’s primary raw water sources, are at historically low levels.

Water personnel are concerned whether adequate water supply can be diverted to treatment facilities to maintain current demands if stream flows continue to drop.

Low stream flow conditions will likely persist until heavy and continuous rainfall occurs.

City officials are asking all water users to keep water usage at a minimum until water levels improve.

Specifically, the city is strongly encouraging all water users to avoid outdoor water irrigation from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. when temperatures and direct sunlight are high…

Additional water conservation information and drought management plans are available on the City’s website: http://cogs.us/196/Water.
