It's a drought. Use even less.
(June 18, 2013) Summer is upon us and this is the second year in a row of below average snowpack and drier than normal conditions in our watersheds. Denver Water has declared a Stage 2 drought. DU Facilities is partnering with Denver Water's "Use Even Less" campaign to reduce water usage on campus. Please help in these efforts by limiting your personal water usage and reporting any leaks you may see on campus.
