City Urges Wise Water Usage

City Urges Wise Water Usage
Posted on 06/30/2015
Despite a very wet spring, current drought conditions have raised concerns among Cottonwood Heights residents and business owners with respect to our water supply.

Cottonwood Heights contracts with Salt Lake City for water services, and the good news is there is no current water shortage. SLC informs us that the water supply is stable and that there’s plenty to get us through the rest of the year. The supply was accomplished with extensive conservation, storage and infrastructure efforts.

But even with a good stock of water on hand, that doesn’t mean it’s a good idea to waste it. The drought might continue, and supplies might diminish over the coming months.

As such, Cottonwood Heights urges citizens to conserve water on a regular basis. During the summer months, we strongly suggest that residents refrain from over-watering their lawns or allowing faucets to run unattended.

With responsible conservancy, we can be better prepared for the future – no matter what “Mother Nature” has in store.
