Fees, conservation on tap for Colorado Springs
Two days of outdoor watering restrictions a week and a fee hike may be on tap for residents in Colorado Springs this summer.
The proposals are in response to a drop in water storage that are approaching levels not seen for a decade.
Colorado Springs gets its water from 25 reservoirs in various parts of the state. On average, the system is 65 percent full.
The system at the end of December was about 50 percent.
