Prep for irrigation, secondary water

Article Published 03/21/2011

April 2011

The Davis and Weber Counties Canal Company will begin to pressurize the secondary water system beginning April 1, 2011, and secondary water service will begin approximately April 15, 2011, weather permitting. It is the user’s responsibility to ensure that their systems are secure and ready to receive water by April 1, 2011. Additional time may be needed to repair leaks and charge all the lines in our service area.

All residents should make sure their secondary water valves are closed before April 1, 2011.

It is the responsibility of each water user to maintain their own isolation valve and replace it if necessary. Owners are responsible for any damage caused by their system failures. Customers who have a two-inch or larger connection and are using the pressurized irrigation water must follow the large users watering schedule.

To request a large-users schedule or in case of an emergency with your secondary water system, call the office at (801) 774-6373 or (801) 698-6374 on weekends, holidays or after regular office hours.

To minimize evapo-transpiration, users are asked to observe the daily no-watering period between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Irrigation users: Please make sure your gate or siphon is ready to accept water by April 1, 2011.

In case of an emergency regarding your irrigation water, please call (801) 774-6373 or (801) 698-5880 on weekends, holidays or after regular office hours.
