Drought prompts City of Thornton to declare warning, prompts water restrictions

Saturday, August 25th, 2012 6:29am MDT

From the city: “The City of Thornton has declared a Stage 2 Drought Warning, enacting mandatory water restrictions for all of its water customers beginning September 1, 2012. The goal of the new restrictions is to reduce water demand by 30%, which will help preserve the community’s water supply for 2013.”

We wish we could say Mother Nature was going to bring some relief but it just doesn’t look like it is going to happen.    The forecast provides for warm weather and only slight chances of thunderstorms in the coming days.  The latest long range climate forecasts are calling for above normal temperatures and below normal precipitation through at least the next 14 days.
