TR 28 - An Assessment of Water Use and Policies in Northern Colorado Cities, K.N. DiNatale, March 1981

Municipal water management policies and water use patterns were examined in twenty-five northern Colorado Front Range communities. Towns were classified on the basis of population; extent of metering, if any; and source of water supply, groundwater or surface water. Water use patterns were analyzed for a four-year period, 1975 to 1978. The effects of metering, water use restrictions and the 1976-1977 drought period on municipal water use were also determined.
