As you know, the State is experiencing severe drought conditions which have now affected the available water supplies for the Weber Basin Water Conservancy District (WBWCD), the provider of much of our outdoor irrigation water and some drinking water. This year, they are again reducing the City's available supply.
We ask you to please voluntarily conserve water by using the guidelines published weekly by the Utah Division of Water Resources.
The City will be monitoring weekly water usage and communicating with the public through social media and its website about our conservation progress. In addition, the City Council recently strengthened the City's water rate schedule in such a way that high water users will pay significantly more for water than customers who are conserving water. The City is also drastically altering the watering of its open spaces, including Eaglewood Golf Course. We are hoping to water only enough to not cause significant damage to the City's facilities.
We urge you to follow these guidelines and conserve as much as possible. The more we can all conserve now, the more stable this year and next year's water supplies will be.
