ADJUST SPRINKLER CLOCK

Temperatures are cooling, and there are fewer daylight hours as we approach the autumn season. Remember to adjust your sprinkler clock to reduce the water duration and number of days. We recommend that you follow the Utah Division of Water Resources “Weekly Watering Guide: conservewater.utah.gov/guide.html

WATER METER LIDS AND SECONDARY WATER VALVE LIDS

Please be sure to keep your water meter lid and secondary water valve lids accessible. Please be sure that new landscape does not cover or bury the lids. Trim overgrowth of lawn and vegetation to prevent them from covering the lid. This will allow the city to provide better service to you. It also allows a rapid response in an emergency when a valve may need to be turned off in order to protect your home and property.

BUILDING AND EQUIPMENT MAINTENANCE

Something to consider while working around outside buildings and equipment is to look for any type of leaks. Look for oil, grease, hydraulic fluid, fuel, or any type of liquid running out of heavy equipment, small equipment, garbage cans, barrels, and fueling stations. These items would all be considered pollutants that may run into a storm drain system. When you see these kinds of situations, take time to fix, replace, or take care of the problem. This will help prevent pollutants from entering the storm drain and polluting our water.
