[ARCHIVED] A Message from the Davis Weber Counties Canal Company - Please Read

As of March 2022, the snowpack and reservoir statuses are lower than 2021. We are in a severe drought designation, which will most likely go to extreme/exceptional status if the current climate continues. We hope Mother Nature will bring more snow and precipitation to the mountains and the valley this spring and summer. Similar to last year, we will have water restrictions and end the water season early (often Oct. 1 or earlier if needed).

We continue to encourage efficient use of the water and conserve where possible. Please adjust your watering based on the weather. Please strive to only water your yard based on its ‘need’. The State website (http://www.conservewater.utah.gov/) states “the typical Utah household will use twice as much water outside as necessary.” We encourage all users to reference the State website for their weekly watering guide. 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 recent legislation passed to have all secondary water systems to be fully metered by the end of 2029. We have begun to retrofit existing services with meters and will be installing thousands more in the next several years. We are sending water use reports to those with meters in an effort 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.

Thank you in advance for your wise water use efforts this upcoming water season, we want to continue the state ethic of efficiently using water in a wise manner. Check our website, www.davisweber.org, for further updates or restrictions. Remember to ensure your system is secure and ready for service by March 28th prior to us pressurizing the system (we may delay pressurizing depending on water supply). Often there is no need to water until May.
