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 10am-6pm 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 PlanWindsor has developed a Municipal Water Efficiency Plan (PDF) 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.
By participating in our water conservation rebate program, you can expect to save between 11 and 22 percent on indoor water use, depending on the type of product replaced and the number of products replaced. The rebate programs is available to all Windsor residents who receive water from the Windsor Water Utility.
Residential Toilet RebatesToilets account for approximately 30 percent of residential indoor water use. Replacing a pre-1994 toilet with a new high-efficiency model can reduce your toilet water use by at least 60 percent — and save about 16 percent of your total indoor water use. Rebates of up to $50 are available.
Residential Washer RebatesInstalling a water-efficient washing machine reduces the average home's water use by 5,000 gallons. According to the EPA, if only 10 percent of the homes in the United States upgraded to water-efficient washing machines, it would save more than 45 billion gallons of water every year.
Rebates of up to $100 are available on washers. To be eligible, the washer must be listed on the latest CEE1.org listing, and the rebate application must be submitted within 90 days of purchase.
