The Current Drought will Effect our Upcoming Water Season

The past 2020 water season was relatively an average snowpack and a very hot and dry summer as well as a dry fall. We ended the year with low storage and our current winter has not produced the snow we need. We are in a D3 Extreme Drought condition. 

We continue to encourage efficient use of the water and conserve where possible. During this upcoming water season please adjust your watering based on the weather. Please strive to only water your yard based on its ‘need’. The State website (http://www.conservewater.utah.gov/) states “the typical Utah household will use twice as much water outside as necessary.” We encourage all users to reference the State website for their weekly watering guide. The State has also updated their regional conservation goals (https://water.utah.gov/regional-conservation-goals/). If you’re interested in getting a rebate for smart controllers and other water efficient fixtures, see https://utahwatersavers.com/ . Another potential measure is to delay any landscape projects that may require additional watering.

Kaysville City's pressure irrigation/secondary water is serviced through 3 different companies: Benchland, Davis & Weber Counties Canal Company, and Haight's Creek. The following are their updates regarding the upcoming water season. Please visit their websites if you should have any questions.

Davis & Weber Counties Canal Company:

We have determined that we will end the water season early on October 1st due to the drought situation.

Recommended Watering Schedule:
If your house number ends in:

  • 0, 1, 2, 3- Water on Monday and Thursday
  • 4, 5, 6- Water on Tuesday and Friday
  • 7, 8, 9- Water on Wednesday and Saturday

It is recommended that you water at any time on your scheduled day except between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.

The State requires meters on all new secondary water services, and we have begun to retrofit existing services with meters. We are sending water use reports to those with meters in an effort to better educate the end user and better manage our limited water resources. Please contact us (meters@davisweber.org) and provide a property address with an email address so the report can be sent to you monthly.

Thank you in advance for your wise water use efforts this upcoming water season, we want to continue the state ethic of efficiently using water in a wise manner. Check our website, www.davisweber.org, for further updates or restrictions. Remember to ensure your system is secure and ready for service by March 29th prior to us pressurizing the system. Often there is no need to water until May.

Benchland Water District:

The Benchland Water District is asking for your assistance in conserving water during this upcoming water season by doing the following:

  • Reduce Pressurized Irrigation Water usage by 20%
  • No outside watering between 10:00 am and 6:00 pm
  • Spot irrigate dry spots rather than over-irrigating the whole area
  • Fix broken sprinklers and adjust so you are not watering the pavement.
  • Water when it is cool. This reduces evaporation.
  • DO NOT water every day. Refer to residential lawn watering guide.
  • Watering less develops deep roots and healthier turf.

We can get through this irrigation season if everybody does their part.  Use what you need, but need what you use.

Close your Valve before April 1st every year.  You are responsible for any water damage to your property as we charge the main lines for the current season. For further information please visit benchlandwater.com

Haight's Creek Irrigation:

Water Restrictions & General Rules:

  • No watering between the hours of 10am and 6pm.
  • Always avoid watering during the heat of the day, from 10am to 6pm. This reduces evaporation loss by 15 to 20 percent.
  • You do not need to water every day.  Most lawns only need to be watered every 3 to 4 days.

Please utilize proactive conservation practices in an effort to reduce waste. Our website https://haightscreek.org/ provides further information regarding conservation practices and wise-water irrigation. 

We appreciate your cooperation with conserving water.
