Conserving water begins with you

BE WATER WISE!

As many know, the below normal snowpack produced less water than desired, and the irrigation season has been hot and dry. We all hoped for rainfall to assist in the water supply, but the area is in a drought condition. This creates higher water use from a limited supply. After discussions and coordination with Weber Basin and other water agencies, it has been decided to be prudent in planning for next year’s water season. The 2018 irrigation season will end October 1st so that we can begin to save as much water as possible in storage for the 2019 water season. We appreciate your understanding of this situation and timeline. We ask that you efficiently use the water for the remainder of the time and wait until spring of 2019 before planting new lawn. 

Here are things that you can do:

1. Cut back on your watering days.
2. Adjust sprinkler heads to ensure you are watering grass not concrete.
3.  No watering for at least 24 hours after a rain storm.
4.  Do not water after 10am or before 6pm.
5.  Reduce the amount of time you water.
6. Use a broom instead of a hose to clean driveways and gutters.
7. Contact the Weber Basin Water Conservancy District for a free evaluation of your lawn’s water needs: 801-771-1677
