It's easy to point the finger at the front range and we can all do our part to conserve, but the fact remains that over 90% of the water in Colorado is used for agriculture. Denver can cut and cut and cut and it will barely make a dent. People like to point to (or give
the finger at the big bad city but that isn't where the water is used.
Anybody who thinks there isn't a financial incentive to cut back should try watering a decent sized lot anymore. Over half of the urban use is for bluegrass. I've cut mine back to a minimum required by my community with the majority of my lot being xeriscaped but it still adds up.
This year shouldn't be a bad water year for supplies at all. For river runners yes but given last years abundance most reservoirs are already very full for this time of year pre-runoff. Snowpack needs to be well below average for several consecutive years like we saw a few years ago to really have problem.
