Water Efficiency Plan

Water conservation is extremely important across Colorado, but Alamosa and the San Luis Valley, consistent with its ” high desert” classification, is in a constant state of water shortage, with water supplies in the Valley severely over -appropriated. The City of Alamosa has demonstrated a long- term commitment to wise-water stewardship and responsible and efficient use of its water resources. The City of has been successful in implementing a number of water conservation measures, and has now identified future measures that particularly focus on education and on outdoor water efficiency to reduce water demand and provide reasonable cost savings for water utility customers. To this end, and in order to satisfy the requirements of the the Colorado Water Conservation Act of 2004, the City adopted this Water Efficiency Plan in 2020, which was created to identify opportunities for further efficiencies in the Alamosa municipal water system.
