Secondary Metering Projects as per State Law

The past three water seasons have been challenging to say the least, with extreme/exceptional drought designations. The current water year is looking much better, but Winter is not over yet. we hope that the snowpack continues to amass, we'll have a good runoff in the spring to fill reservoirs, and have good river flows throughout the summer. we ask that you plan to continue to use the secondary water wisely so that more water can get to the Great Salt Lake and we can have sufficient water left in storage in the river system for next year. 

We continue to encourage efficient use of the water and conserve where possible. Please adjust our watering based on the weather, referencing the State website http://www.conservewater.utah.gov/  . we ask that you water no more than two times a week between April-June and September-October, and no more than 3 times a week in July and August (hotter months). If you're interested in getting a rebate for smart controllers and other water efficient fixtures, see  https://utahwatersavers.com/ . 

The State requires meters on all new secondary water services and we are retrofitting existing services with meters. we are sending water use reports to those with meters to better educate the end user and better manage our limited water resources. Please contact us meters@davisweber.org and provide an email address so the report can be sent to you monthly. 

We have recently completed a rate study and have raised the secondary water rates to meet the financial needs to operate and maintain the system and pay for secondary meters, capital projects, and make repairs when necessary. Thank you for your understanding. Check our website www.davisweber.org , for further updates or restrictions. Remember to ensure your system is secure and ready for service by March 27th prior to us pressurizing the system. Often there is no need to water until May, especially in wet years. 

Legislation passed by the Utah State Legislature in 2022 requires all secondary water connections in Utah to be metered by 2030. Visit UtahWaterMetering.com for more information. Or email, info @ UtahWaterMetering.com or call 801-810-5886

2023 Water Season

Secondary Water Start Up


Mother Nature did not produce as much snow and rain that we need to replenish the watershed. The secondary system startup was delayed by 2 weeks (pressurized during late April) and available May 2nd.

Please reduce your secondary water use and limit watering to once a week until Memorial Day, twice a week from Memorial Day to Labor Day, and then back to once a week until the end of the water season. WE DO NOT RECOMMEND NEW LANDSCAPES UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES. ALL NEW LANDSCAPING MUST ADHERE TO THE CURRENT WATERING SCHEDULE. The secondary water system will be shut down October 1st or sooner, depending on water supplies and water use. 

If your house number ends in:

0,1,2,3 Water on Monday or Thursday 
4,5,6,   Water on Tuesday or Friday
7,8,9    Water on Wednesday or Saturday 

If your house number ends in:

0,1,2,3  Water on Monday and Thursday 
4,5,6     Water on Tuesday and Friday
7,8,9     Water on Wednesday and Saturday

It's recommended that you water once (a watering cycle equals 20 minutes for overhead sprays, and 40 minutes for rotors, per zone) on your scheduled day EXCEPT between 10:00 am and 6:00 pm .  We recommend reviewing the State website for conservation ideas and guides.  http://www.conservewater.utah.gov/

Check our website  https://davisweber.org, for further updates or restrictions. We ask for your patience as we manage a reduced water supply. 

Davis and Weber Counties Canal

Q: Refund or fee reduction 

A. No, secondary water users of the Davis and Weber Counties Canal Company are not guaranteed delivery of a specific quantity of water each year or guaranteed delivery of water for a specified period of time. The Company cannot be held responsible for variations in annual water supply available for secondary water due to drought. The Company is a non-profit entity that relies upon member fees to operate and maintain the secondary water system. The cost of maintaining and servicing your secondary water system is not reduced during times of water supply shortage and the Company will not issue refunds to secondary water users due to interrupted service or a shortened water season. We apologize for the inconvenience. 

Q. When is the secondary water going to be metered? 

A. Davis and Weber Counties Canal Company has required meters on all new construction since 2013 and has about 22% of the system metered. In the 2022 legislative session, HB242 passed, requiring that all secondary water services be metered by the end of 2029. Secondary water meters will be installed throughout our system over the next 7 years.
