Frisco Urges Voluntary Water Conservation

FRISCO, Colo. (AP) - The town of Frisco is asking residents to voluntarily conserve water.

The town is preparing for possible drought conditions following a dry winter and spring with below-average snowpack.

Town officials said Monday they are asking people to voluntarily limit how much they water their lawns and plants. They also are asking residents not to hose off paved areas, and restaurants are encouraged to serve water to customers only when the customers have specifically requested it.

Town officials say that through the summer, they will evaluate whether it's necessary to enact mandatory water restrictions.
