Irrigation shutoff planned early this year: Oct. 1

Article Published 09/08/2014

Due to another drought year all irrigation deliveries will be shut off October 1 instead of October 15.
This is due to below average water levels. Weber Basin will begin draining their irrigation system starting Oct. 1.
Residents are reminded to open valves following October 1 to allow proper drainage of their systems.
Due to the large size of our system, it takes several days for it to completely shut down. 
After the several days, it is suggested that residents close their valves after the system has been shut down to prevent any damage during the winter months.
-Saturday, September 20, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., is Weber Basin’s annual “Fall Garden Festival at the Learning Garden,”  2837 East Highway 193, Layton.
This is free to the public with free activities, landscape classes, tours, experts in the landscape and irrigation industry to answer questions, vendors, and local nurseries selling great plants for your yard. Enjoy free cinnamon rolls, milk, and apple juice.

Water/Planting Tips:
-September temperatures are cooling and things are beginning to revive from the summer heat.  Residents can water less frequently to keep plants healthy and promote deep rooting as plants store energy for next year’s growth. 
- If you plan on planting, or even transplanting/dividing September is a great time to plant trees, shrubs and perennials.
