In partnership with the Bureau of Reclamation, State of Utah and Utah State University, Weber Basin Water Conservancy District has started installing secondary water meters in several areas within the District service area beginning March 2011. The meter project is important in helping water users to be accountable and know how much water they are using for irrigation needs on their properties. The meter project incorporates providing end users with a water usage statement each month. The statement provides enough information to assist in the more efficient management of irrigation water compared to real time weather for that same period of use and estimations for use based on property size, lawn irrigation needs and local factors that contribute to irrigating efficiently. The new meters are also part of a broader water conservation effort that has the goal of educating and informing residents how to be more efficient and effective with their water.
