University of Colorado Boulder


About 80% of the main campus is irrigated using non-potable water from the New Anderson Ditch. The university has owned these ditch rights since 1880. Irrigation is conducted at night and is based on information gathered from an on-campus weather station. Sometimes day-time watering occurs, usually due to new sod or system testing.
