Water continues to be one of Colorado’s most precious, and one of the world’s most finite, resources. This month, Erie is exploring the ways we can help conserve water and why it is so important.
Erie’s Water Plan, developed in 2021, includes a variety of water efficiency and conservation measures. Programs were evaluated to determine their compatibility with Erie’s objectives and water supply system, and the ability to achieve the target water savings. Our water savings goal, established in the 2021 update, is to achieve a 10% water savings in 10 years relative to baseline projected demands; this is equivalent to 115 gallons per capita per day.
