Water Conservation

Water Conservation - Every Drop Counts Webpage Header

Everyone needs to do their part! The Town of Windsor strives to be a good environmental steward and has put forth efforts to maximize water conservation such as:

  • The installation of water efficient appliances at town facilities
  • Lawn watering restrictions (No watering from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. daily) 
  • Use of irrigation system rain sensors   
  • Detection of water leaks and repair
  • Xeriscape garden     
  • Educating the public and providing opportunities to conserve water through this website and through the media


Municipal Water Efficiency Plan
Windsor has developed a Municipal Water Efficiency Plan in accordance with the Water Conservation Act of 2004 and to meet the provisions of Colorado Revised Statute section 37-60-126. As part of CRS 37-60-126, a state-approved plan will qualify Windsor for funding from the Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB) and the Colorado Water Resources and Power Development Authority for water supply and delivery projects.

Garden In a Box
The Center for ReSource Conservation is partnering with the town to sell Xeriscape garden kits that include low-water use plants suited for Colorado’s semi-arid climate. “Garden In A Box” kits will go on sale March 6 via the Center for ReSource Conservation website. Kits range in both plant options and price points. Fifty kits have been reserved for the Windsor community and will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. Windsor residents will also receive a $25 discount on kits.

Mayor's Water Conservation Challenge (April 1-30)

Town of Windsor Mayor Kristie Melendez is joining mayors across the country in asking residents to make a long-term commitment to manage water resources more wisely by taking part in the annual Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation April 1-30. The annual challenge is a non-profit national community service campaign to see which leaders can best inspire their residents to make a series of informative and easy-to-do online pledges at mywaterpledge.com to use water more efficiently. Cities with the highest percentage of participating residents will be entered into drawings for hundreds of eco-friendly prizes, including home improvement gift cards, home irrigation equipment, and a grand prize Toyota Prius.
