It has been a long few months, in a new decade that just hasn’t made sense; but we here in Paonia have a lot going for us.  We are strong, resilient, and when we come together, regardless of differences in ideology or opinion, we accomplish great things! It is my mission to to keep our community informed, and a partner to all that we are working on. We are available to you in the office, via telephone, e-mail, social media, and this website, and we will endeavor to keep you in the know, and know where to go, to see whats happening out and about in Paonia. – Corinne

CODE RED
Voluntary Water Restrictions Requested:

9/2/2020 UPDATE: Our tank is full! Keep up the good work so we can avoid mandatory restrictions! Corinne

 Paonia Water update - 8/27/2020: WAY TO GO Paonia water users! Your work to reduce use is having exactly the affect on our system and storage we hoped for. Our storage tank continues to replenish and currently is just under 23 feet. Please stay diligent, water supply to the springs will continue to drop usually through September, where they hold steady until March, when they begin to increase. All of us working together prevents the need for harsher restrictions. On behalf of the Town Administration and staff we can't say well done and thank YOU for making this happen enough.
The Town of Paonia strongly encourages all residents to follow voluntary watering restrictions in the interest of water conservation during the current drought situation. Please reduce water use to domestic use only and refrain from extra uses such as filling pools, landscaping and/or irrigation use.
 
Why Watering Restrictions?
 
Water conservation is always an important goal. In the event of drought conditions, the Town will occasionally need to place and enforce mandatory watering restrictions in order to conserve water for the most necessary purposes to support the health, safety and welfare of our community and to ensure that our water supply is not depleted. For this reason, The Town is strongly encouraging all domestic water users voluntarily reduce water use to domestic use only and refrain from landscaping and/or irrigation use.
 
The Town will continue to monitor water usage and may enact mandatory restrictions at a later date.
Thank you, Corinne
