Water Conservation

Twin Lakes

In Colorado, we rely heavily on snowmelt for our water supply. Our water system travels nearly 180 miles and includes the use of reservoirs, the natural river system, pipes, tunnels and pumps, all of which help us pull the water we own from our three river basins. Learn more about our water system.

Coloradans know the weather here can be unpredictable, making it difficult to know how much water will be available each summer. We can experience several years of drought and then receive record snow levels. 

Regardless of what Mother Nature has in store for us, it's important to remember that Aurora has a semi-arid climate. Aurora's snow and rain is about half of the average annual precipitation for the United States, so it's important that we all do our part to help conserve water.

Water conservation can help you save water and money. Staff is here to help, so if you have additional questions, call 303.739.7195 or email You can also view the Aurora Water 2015 Municipal Water Efficiency Plan.
