TREMONTON – By Cari Doutre – June 22, 2021
Residents connected to Tremonton City’s secondary water system are scratching their heads on Monday, June 21, 2021, wondering why there’s no water available to irrigate their lawns.
It’s because Tremonton City shut it off.
Tremonton City has been required by The Bear River Canal Company to shut down the city’s pressurized secondary water system to help conserve water during Utah’s current extreme drought conditions for a 19-hour period once a week.
Tremonton City’s Pressurized Secondary System will be shut down on Mondays at 1 p.m. until 8 a.m. on the following Tuesdays.
And for those Tremonton City residents with homes connected only to the city’s culinary water system, they are also being asked to reduce their outdoor water usage for the same 19-hour period once a week.
“The Tremonton Mayor and City Council are asking that our citizens using culinary water to irrigate their lawn to voluntarily follow the same 19-hour water restriction weekly to help with water conservation during the drought,” Tremonton City stated on their website in the public notices section HERE on June 18, 2021.
