Water Conservation: A County-Wide Effort

As a member of the Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District, WaterPro fully supports the District’s efforts to manage and conserve our area’s water at all times, and especially now as the state experiences drought.

After Jordan Valley’s April 16th Member Agency meeting, General Manager/CEO Richard Bay urged all water agencies in Salt Lake County to present a unified message to County residents about ways that we can all work together to conserve water. His suggestions include:

  • Don’t water outdoors at this time. The recent cool, wet weather provides enough natural moisture for lawns and gardens.

Consult Jordan Valley’s water use advisory for up-to-date

  • recommendations about when and how long to water. The advisory is updated at least weekly and can be found at jvwcd.org or conservationgardenpark.org.
  • When JVWCD’s water use advisory says it’s okay to start watering outdoors, don’t set sprinkler timers to automatic mode. Use only manual mode.
  • Water outdoors between 8:00 pm and 8:00 am when using a sprinkler timer, or between 6:00 pm and 10:00 am when watering by hand.
  • Visit Jordan Valley’s Conservation Garden Park at 8275 South 1300 West in West Jordan to find out more about how to conserve water while making your yard look amazing. The garden is open Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and admission is free.
