 Denver Water said people are being better about not over watering this year BUT it’s system is getting over loaded Mondays at 5 a.m.

Denver Water said each Monday at 5 a.m., millions of gallons of water thunder through its pump stations and mains to satisfy the massive demand tied to irrigations systems programmed to turn on during that time slot.

Water demand on Monday, June 24, at 5 a.m. soared to levels not seen in years.

So maybe adjust yours to stagger it for the system?
