Air Quality

Residents can make little changes, such as reducing vehicle idle times, to help improve air quality. The Sustainability Committee will be providing tips and information on air quality January through March 2020.

Energy Usage

Lehi has a diversified energy portfolio, including traditional and clean energy sources (i.e. wind). We recently built a generation facility that uses clean and efficient natural gas generators. The facility will be used during peak energy usage times. 

The Committee will focus on energy savings from April through June 2020.

Transportation

Lehi City is working with UDOT and UTA on creating master transportation plans to improve mass transit options throughout the city. Mass transit is a great resource to improve traffic congestion and reduce emissions. 

The Committee will provide tips and education on mass transit from July through September 2020.

Water efficiency and conservation is an important topic for our desert climate. There are many resources available to residents to help improve efficiency and conserve this valuable resource. Visit our Water Conservation page for more information. 

Lehi City is partnering with the Jordan River Commission to improve the water quality of the Jordan River. There are seven miles of the Jordan River that run through Lehi.  Visit the #loveyourwatershed announcement for more information.
