RIFLE WATER RESTRICTIONS STILL IN PLACE
Rifle—Outdoor water use has been partially restored in Rifle following the break of an intake pipeline from the Colorado River to the Graham Mesa water treatment plant. City officials say while the repairs aren’t as extensive as initially feared, there are still problems delivering the water at maximum capacity. Until the delivery system is fully operational, the city is imposing an odd/even water schedule. Rifle residents with even numbered addresses will be allowed to water on even numbered dates and so on. The city is asking residents to limit watering times to early morning or late evening until further notice.
