Weber Basin still urging water conservation

Article Published 01/26/2016

The Weber Basin Water Conservancy District is still urging conservation, despite a wet winter so far.

At the end of November, the water supply was at less than 50 percent. According to the NRCS, Northern Utah is sitting around 85 percent snow pack as of mid-January.

While it is easy to watch the weather, look at the mountains, and see lots of snow, it is important that residents continue to practice good water-conservation habits to ensure that there is enough water especially if the rest of winter is below average.

CONSERVATION TIP: Keep a pitcher of drinking water in your fridge. This will save water that might have otherwise been wasted waiting for tap water to get cold.
