Summer Water Rules

Water is always a limited, precious resource in semi-arid Colorado. Conserving water not only saves you money, it's just the right thing to do.

Denver Water sells water to nearly 20 water providers within Lakewood, serving more than 143,000 residents. These providers generally follow Denver Water's rules.

Your water provider may impose more restrictive rules and may levy fines for violations of the rules. If you have questions about the rules and possible fines that apply to your water use, contact your water provider. Input your address into the My Neighborhood portal to find your provider.
