Water Supply & Quality
Mancos, CO

Start Date: 6/14/2018 -  
Outdoor water use restrictions took effect in Mancos in preparation for potential water shortages later in the year. Outdoor watering may be done on certain days, depending on one’s address. Montezuma County was in exceptional drought conditions, due to low snowpack in the San Juan Mountains during the previous winter and abnormally hot, dry weather during the spring. Several reservoirs and rivers in the county were low. Cortez Journal (Colo.), June 28, 2018
