Arvada Urging Community: No Outdoor Watering

All water users for the City of Arvada are being asked to stop outdoor watering, including residences, businesses and HOAs, until further notice.


The City of Arvada is requesting assistance from the entire community. The unprecedented floods have carried large amounts of dirt into the City’s source water supply reservoirs, resulting in very turbid, muddy water. The City’s treatment plants can only process and purify this water at low flows. As a result, treated water production has been limited.


This situation will gradually improve over the next few weeks as the dirt slowly settles out. Due to the present reduced capacity of the water treatment plants, the City is requesting everyone to curtail outside irrigation for the next two weeks. Thank you for your assistance.
