Weber Basin Water Conservancy District is installing secondary water meters in several areas within the District's service area. The meter project is important in helping water users to be accountable and know how much water they are using for irrigation. The meter project incorporates providing users with a water usage statement each month. The statement provides information to assist in managing the use of irrigation water. Meters assist in the conservation effort with a goal of educating and informing residents how to be more efficient and effective with water usage.
We are fortunate to have a wonderful water supply. We are the recipients of water that serves a host of uses from recreation and wildlife habitat to the treatment and use of every resident, business and industry in Weber Basin's service area. Water really is a driving force of the economy and will continue to be such if we manage and use that water supply appropriately.
Weber Basin Water participates on the Utah Governor’s Water Conservation Team with all other large water providers in the state. The Governor established a goal to reduce water usage in Utah by 25 percent per capita by 2025. We support and need to do our part in the achievement of that goal which will allow our water supply to remain adequate for years to come.
There will be very few direct impacts to you as a water user by having a meter installed on your connection. The following items outline impacts that may exist during meter installation:
The District offers many conservation programs and educational information to help each water user be more efficient and effective.
