Watering at Parks

The watering rates at city parks will resume normal frequencies. Intermittently over the last few weeks, watering to the parks has been reduced or temporarily suspended to guarantee the availability of clean water for all community uses, including drinking, bathing, household watering, and more.

All water tanks are currently at or above minimum capacity. Although sections of parks have become dormant, the health of the grass long-term is not in danger. Rochelle Ranch Golf Course has maintained watering throughout only because it is fed by a separate water source and does not tie into our city’s water system.

In the future, when the Parks and Recreation department is asked to reduce watering, we will also notify the public. This will allow individuals to choose if they would also like to reduce household watering so that our water supply can increase more quickly. This would not be a mandatory restriction. Thanks to the Water Treatment Division for ensuring our supply of clean water and to Parks and Recreation Department for being understanding in park care.

For more information, please contact Mira Miller, City of Rawlins Community Relations Coordinator, at 307-328-4500 ext. 1022.
