Watering Restrictions And Guidelines for 2023
The Stonegate Village Metropolitan District (SVMD) manages and oversees the operations and maintenance of the District’s water resources and facilities within the Stonegate Village, Stonegate North Villages Metropolitan District and Compark communities. As part of the District’s overall water conversation program, SVMD announced “watering restrictions and guidelines” for District residents. These restrictions and guidelines became effective on April 15, 2019 and will remain in effect until further notice. The District Board Members have kept a close eye on drought conditions and as conditions continue to be warmer and drier than normal, the District Board asks each resident and commercial user to adhere and participate in the District’s water conservation program.
The 2023 SVMD Water Restrictions and Guideline Schedule are listed below:
2023 SVMD Water Restrictions and Guidelines
- Addresses ending with an even number (0, 2, 4, 6 or 8) may water Sundays, Tuesdays, and Fridays.
- Addresses ending with an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7 or 9) may water Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
- All other properties (multi-family and commercial) may water on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
- No watering is permissible on Wednesdays.
- Watering is permissible before 10 a.m. or after 6 p.m. on your designated watering days.
- Three week grace period with no watering restrictions is granted for addresses with new lawns, provided the installation occurs prior to Memorial Day or after Labor Day.
Additionally, the District is not only a provider of water but also a user. As a user, the District will support the water conservation efforts by reducing water usage in the open space areas by establishing the following goals and directions:
- Ensure irrigation occurs within agronomic rates.
- Continue to audit the irrigation system and correct deficiencies in a timely manner.
- Identify areas that can be converted to low water use plant materials.
- Maximize the reuse of treated effluent water for parks and recreation areas. Treated effluent which is not used for irrigation would be discharged to Cherry Creek and any opportunity for reuse would be lost.
- Eliminate use of deep ground water supply as a supplemental source to the treated effluent irrigation system.
As a reminder, the overall goal of the District is to minimize water waste by maximizing the efficient use of the District’s water resources. The District’s Directors appreciate the help and assistance of all users in meeting this goal.
