The Town of Hotchkiss is exercising caution by instituting odd-even outdoor watering restrictions for the town's residents.

Public works director Mike Owens said he's been assured Leroux Creek water supplies are sufficient, even at 55 percent, but noted usage in early June jumped substantially.

"Due to the very dry conditions, I suggest we implement odd and even water days for now and hope the weather patterns change for the better," he said in a memo to trustees.

House numbers ending in an even number will water on Mondays and Wednesdays; odd house numbers can water Tuesday and Thursday.

Hotchkiss owns water shares from Leroux Creek and other sources, which is treated at the Horse Park Water Treatment Plant. The town also provides treated water to residents on Hanson and Rogers mesas. Both water companies will be notified of the in-town water restrictions.
