At the City Council Meeting on June 9, 2021, the city council decided to implement phase 3 of the Water Shortage Management Plan effective June 15. Under these restrictions, water users may not water their yards more than two days a week with at least two days in between watering cycles.
One irrigation is equivalent to 20 minutes with pop-up spray heads and 40 minutes with impact rotor sprinklers. With the current restrictions in place, we understand that there will be spots on lawns where there may be browning. We would encourage residents to spot water in those areas rather than run a whole irrigation zone or running your system longer.
We appreciate those who have taken our current water shortage seriously and the efforts that have been made to conserve water.
Weekly Watering Guide
The Utah Division of Water Resources publishes a weekly watering guide, which determines how frequently we should water based on temperature and precipitation rates. Visit conservewater.utah.gov/guide for more information.

Parks & Grounds Watering Schedule
The Parks Division has developed a watering schedule to maintain our parks and facilities. The goal is to apply 1/2 inch of water per water cycle. The frequency of watering varies depending on the type of facility and it’s primary use.
