Summit towns ask residents to imagine a day without water

Summit Daily staff report

Towns and organizations around Summit County are asking residents to consider the impacts of their water consumption this week. The High Country Conservation Center, along with the towns of Breckenridge, Dillon, Frisco and the Copper Mountain Consolidated Metro District will join the fourth annual "Imagine a Day Without Water" campaign on Oct. 10, a nationwide day of water education and advocacy.

The event asks individuals to imagine a day where the water we rely on for recreation activities dries up, Lake Dillon goes empty and stream flows can no longer support wildlife.

In addition to the general call to action, the towns of Breckenridge, Dillon, Frisco and the Copper Mountain Consolidated Metro District will be holding tours of their water facilities to give residents a better understanding of how the facilities work, and the infrastructure that goes into safely delivering water to every home in Summit County.

"Water and water conservation are important to us as a community, and we want to be seen as a leader in the space," said Kerstin Anderson, communications director for Dillon. "We think people sometimes take water for granted, and we want people to start consciously thinking about the amounts they use."
