Dining and having a cocktail on an outdoor patio or rooftop is a unique aspect of the restaurant, bar and nightclub experience in Denver. Such establishments gain excellent value as patrons are drawn by outstanding views of the Mile High City offered by open air seating areas.
However, such areas require a permit called a "Tables, Chairs and Railings (TCR)" permit. Holding this permit for such outdoor spaces means that establishments follow City regulation regarding the existence of outdoor seating areas to ensure safety for both patrons and pedestrians in the public right-of-way. For more information and details on "TCR" permits, please visit www.Denvergov.org/streetfurniture, or call the Department of Public Works at 720-865-2782 or 303-446-3759, Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

From May 1 to Oct. 1, customers must follow these rules: no watering between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., no watering during rain or strong winds and no watering sidewalks and streets, among other summer watering rules. Denver Water employs a group of water-use enforcement officers to make sure customers understand the rules. First-time offenders receive a warning, second-time offenders receive a $50 fine and third-time offenders receive a $100 fine. If customers continue to violate the rules, their water service may be shut off.
There are exceptions, however, like watering for up to 21 days to establish turf from seed or sod. Our operating rules detail the policy in full.
Colorado’s semi-arid climate means everyone needs to do their part to ensure adequate water supplies will be available well into the future. Thank you for continuing to use only what you need.
