While the City and County of Broomfield is not currently in a major drought, residents and businesses are encouraged to continue efforts toward water conservation.
The winter of 2022–23 brought average to above average precipitation, both in the immediate Broomfield area and in the mountains that supply the City and County of Broomfield (CCOB)’s water. Snowpack in the mountains is average or better and, in some areas, it is still accumulating. The Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District issued a normal quota of 70% on the Colorado-Big Thomspon system. CCOB's projected water supply for the year is above average. For these reasons, CCOB staff have lifted the Drought Watch that was in place since 2022. However, residents and businesses are encouraged to continue water conservation.
