Hayden Water Conservation Program

Hayden Water Conservation Program

The Hayden Town Council recognizes the importance of water conservation not only for the long-term maintenance of the water system but also the benefits it creates for the environment and financial benefit it creates for the customer; and acknowledges that a water conservation program is highly encouraged by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment as a best management practice that all water providers in the State of Colorado should adopt. Town Council established and adopted a water conservation program in 2017.
