Water is a precious resource—especially in a semi-arid climate like ours in Colorado. With an increasing population and decreasing amounts of annual precipitation, it’s more important now than ever to take action to steward our water supply and thoughtfully prepare for the future.
A recent article in ColoradoBiz Magazine, South Platte River Heroes, highlights the efforts being made in the community to address the water shortage issue head-on. Investments made by partners including The Greenway Foundation, Denver Water, The Colorado Water Conservation Board, and Colorado Parks and Wildlife have been critical in expanding storage space in Chatfield Reservoir.
As a master-planned community in close proximity to Chatfield Reservoir, Sterling Ranch has made water conservation one of its ten guiding principles. We are pioneering the way towards smart and sustainable water usage, and applaud all of the efforts made in our great state to ensure that it remains a wonderful and vibrant place to live.
In addition to community-wide practices such as rainwater harvesting and water-wise landscaping guidelines, we also empower each resident to monitor both indoor and outdoor water usage by equipping every home with a dual-water metering system that provides real-time data on how much water is being used.
