Yes. Every year from May 15 – September 15, lawn watering is not allowed during the hours of 10:00 AM and 5:00 PM. For new lawns, a permit can be obtained (for a fee) to water during those hours. Call 970.565.7320 for more information. Check out the “Water Conservation” page.
Yes, on Park Street, and at the City Service Center in the Industrial Park. Check out the “Water Dock” page for a link to the map.
When water leaves the tap, it isn't under pressure any longer and the air comes out. However, a yellow or rusty color is probably due to sediment from the water system. Try running your water for a few minutes; this usually takes care of the problem.
Depending on the area of town where the leak is, the main line may be quite old and a water valve won’t shut down as well as it should, so several valves may have to be shut down. The City is trying to rectify the problem by installing new water lines and valves. All of this takes time and money. Each year, Public Works budgets for a major waterline replacement project and a street improvement project.
