The town reserves the right to further restrict the use of the municipal water system for outside watering purposes. Persons that have the ability to water outside with their private wells or through use of the municipal ditch system are strongly encouraged to do so. Questions?? Call 539-6882
In an effort to maintain residents' use of Acequia Town ditch water the following rules have been established:
• Cuts in the ditch will be allowed at night only, and will be regulated by a sign up sheet that will rotate participants.
• Trash is a continuing problem in personal culverts, therefore, the minimum culvert size is 12”, which the Town will enforce, and any new culverts must be pre-approved by the Town.
• The ditch will be policed by citizens on weekends and holidays. There will be a list of volunteers to police the ditch every weekend that it is running.
• Violators will be verbally warned first, and then will receive a letter from the attorney if violations continue.
• On low water days, a schedule will be established and publicized. For example, Mondays this street will receive ditch water, on Tuesdays this street will receive ditch water, etc.
• During the daytime, obstructions in the ditch are only allowed to assist in pumping.
Report ditch problems to Poncha Springs Town Hall, 539-6882, during regular business hours: Monday–Friday, 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. & 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.
After hours, weekends, and holidays call 207-2293 to report any ditch problems. Please leave a phone number and someone will respond.
