State Engineer's Office Keeps Utah Lake Open for Secondary Use
What you can do.
Voluntary conservation will cause a corresponding decrease in the amount of water which is drawn from Utah Lake into the canals. Decreasing water drawn from Utah Lake could prolong the number of days which the canals can continue to supply water to Riverton City during the 2016 irrigation season. Currently, the best case scenario is to keep the canals in operation until October 1, 2016. To keep secondary water operating as long as possible, voluntary conservation is required.
As a result of the outcome from this morning’s meeting, the City Council meeting scheduled for tonight has been canceled. Discussion with City Council Members will continue regarding improved conservation methods for the City and how our community can work together to more effectively manage our secondary water supply.
