Weber Basin Water Conservancy District is planning for water needs well into the future. Part of that planning includes factoring in population projections compared to current and future water supplies. It is anticipated that new water supplies will need to be developed to keep up with the demands of projected future populations. This is where conservation and education become important. Water Conservation is in reality a water supply project. If our current water supplies can be extended by our reduction in use, and elimination of water waste, future water supplies may not need to be developed, or can be postponed for extended periods of time which will save all water users a lot of money.
Public Education related to water and water conservation is a passive education approach, rather than a very strict forced approach. It is accomplished through many of the programs offered by Weber Basin and other State and local agencies. Some of these programs include:
Free landscape classes
Free water checks
Free facility tours
Participation in state and local programs such as water week
The public is invited to learn how to achieve water conservation goals and reduce water waste, which primarily occurs by overwater lawns and landscapes. The resources are available, and now, technology is also available to help achieve water efficiency, without giving up the quality and standard of life that we all have and enjoy. We encourage you to visit the Learning Garden, take the free classes and learn how you can be more water-wise and more water efficient, while improving the quality and maintaining the beauty and functionality you want in your landscape.
