 Water is a precious commodity here in the West, and we believe strongly we should all take steps to ensure a secure water future. No matter the time of year, it's always a good time to practice water conservation. Whether the rivers are flowing at full capacity or drought conditions exist, making a conscious effort to use less water will help ensure the Water Division's ability to provide the water needed for personal and commercial use as well as fire flows.

Did you know that your leaky toilet could be costing you money? Even though a leak may seem insignificant, in a matter of just a month you could be losing hundreds of gallons of water from one toilet. Make a habit of checking all your toilets on a regular basis. Use these quick, simple tips and techniques from Denver Water to find and stop leaking toilets before they cost you any more money.
