DENVER (AP) - Denver-area and Colorado Springs residents won’t have to check the calendar before watering their lawns this summer.

Neither Denver Water nor Colorado Springs Utilities are imposing drought restrictions for the watering season, which officially starts Thursday. However, both are asking people to voluntarily limit watering their lawns to three days a week or less to help conserve water.

The Gazette (https://bit.ly/SdKscI ) reports that Colorado Springs expects to have about 2 years of water in storage this year after plentiful snowfall in the Upper Colorado Basin.
