Water Conservation

Phase 3 Watering Restrictions

The efforts of Lehi residents to conserve water during the 2021 Summer were remarkable. Lehi City residents saved over 3,274 acre-feet of water. That is over 1,066,000,000 gallons of water or a decrease of about 21% from 2020.

On February 22, 2022, the Lehi City Council passed Ordinance #11-2022 which allows the use of the Lehi secondary water system (the water used for irrigation purposes) during the dates of April 15 to October 15. There are a few exceptions that should be considered. If you have just put in new seed or sod, please continue to water those. Also, make sure that if your trees or shrubs need some water to water them with a hose.

We are currently in Phase 3 of our Water Shortage Management Plan.  It is important for any Lehi water user (municipal, commercial, and residential) to understand how to appropriately respond to a water shortage and what action should be taken by city administration and Lehi water users. The provisions of this plan apply to all persons, customers, and property utilizing water provided by the Lehi City Water Division.

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 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.
