Watering reduced at some Colorado Springs parks and facilities

Posted: Updated:

You might notice some brown grass at Colorado Springs city parks and facilities this week. Colorado Springs Utilities is having some problems with its nonpotable water system, which has led to reduced watering in some places.

Utilities had a leak in the system, which is more than 50 years old. That means that some of the sprinklers at city parks, landscapes, cemeteries, and athletic fields haven't been getting enough pressure for sufficient watering.

Crews at Memorial Park have been working for days to set up for the Celtic Festival that kicks off Saturday, but CS Utilities says the grass may look a little drier than usual.

"We know that it's tough because this time of year we have all of these activities... so just bear with us, we're working hard trying to help the city out and get their fields and parks back in suitable condition," said Steve Berry with Colorado Springs Utilities.

Repairs are expected to be finished by early next week.
