The past water season was relatively an average snowpack and a very hot and dry summer. We ended the year with low storage and we are getting less than normal runoff. We are in a D3 Extreme Drought condition. We have determined that WE WILL END THE WATER SEASON EARLY ON OCTOBER 1ST DUE TO THE DROUGHT SITUATION or sooner if circumstances require. Please reduce your secondary water use and not water more than twice a week. Drought Monitor
We continue to encourage efficient use of the water and conserve where possible. Please adjust your watering based on weather. Please strive to only water your yard based on its "need". The State website http://www.conservewater.utah.gov/
states "the typical Utah household will use twice as much water outside as necessary." We encourage all users to reference the State website for their weekly watering guide. The State has also updated their regional conservation goals https://water.utah.gov/regional-conservation-goals/)
. If you're interested in getting a rebate for smart controllers and other water efficient fixtures, see https://utahwatersavers.com/
. Another potential measure is to delay any landscape projects that may require additional watering.
The state requires metes on all new secondary water services and we have begun to retrofit existing services with meters. We are sending water use reports to those with meters in an effort to better educate the end user and better manage our limited water resources. Please contact us email@example.com
and provide an email address so the report can be sent to you monthly.
Thank you in advance for your wise water use efforts this upcoming water season, we want to continue the state ethic of efficiently using water in a wise manner. Check our website www.davisweber.org
, for further updates or restrictions. Remember to ensure your system is secure and ready for service by March 29th prior to us pressurizing the system. Often there is no need to water until May.
