Southern Colorado has been hovering around record-setting heat lately. Also, August has been a particularly dry month for the region. Naturally, this has increased the region's wildfire threat. Emergency workers might need this water to help fight these potential flames.
Additionally, the dry weather has added to Southern Colorado's history of scarce water. And, conserving water won't just help Southern Colorado. It can be used to supplement other areas around the Colorado River Basin and western states, like California, that are experiencing lengthy droughts.
