The Steamboat II Metropolitan District purchases water from the City of Steamboat Springs. However, we are limited to how much water we can buy every month, so during the summer irrigation months, we must supplement with our wells. The District owns 3 wells and the water is regularly tested. It is safe to drink, but it is harder water. A few tips: Use the Cascade Platinum dishwasher packs....they help reduce spots and etching (more expensive, but definitely worth it!) Some people have told us they use liquid Calgon (found in laundry section at City Market) in their dishwasher as well as their clothes washer (add a capful to during rinse cycle).
We urge our residents to conserve water during this drought we are experiencing. Please follow the watering restriction release we sent out last month. Using more water on your days to water does not help us conserve water! Click here for the press release.
Stage 2 Water Restrictions have been implemented. Click here to read the press release and learn which days you are allowed to water. Same schedule as years past. Remember, no watering on WEDNESDAYS for anyone and no watering between 10AM and 6PM.
"The trail provides a connection from CR 42 to Gossard Parkway in response to requests from residents for an alternate west side path until a long-term planned US 40 sidewalk or core trail extension gets built. While a bit rough and hilly, the trail offers an alternate route to town from US 40. The back-country trail is on a temporary easement from the property owners and passes completely through private property. Help keep this trail available by staying on the trail (this means your dogs too). Another reason to stay on the trail is it passes near the gun range property - stay on the trail to avoid potential hazards. The trail is for non-motorized use only."
Enjoy this new connection and
