EMERGENCY MESSAGE FROM LEHI CITY

THIS IS AN EMERGENCY MESSAGE FROM LEHI CITY.

Please pay careful attention.


As the result of the use of culinary water for lawn watering and other prohibited activities, the City is experiencing an unexpected emergency shortage of culinary water. Culinary water is in-home drinking water and spigots attached to houses. In accordance with the ordinance, we ask that all Lehi residents only use culinary water for approved activities, which do not include lawn watering, washing driveways, garden watering, etc. If culinary water continues to decrease at current rates, some neighborhoods in Lehi may see culinary water outages as soon as Friday, June 21, 2013. If all Lehi residents will restrict culinary water usages to approved activities, Lehi City expects culinary water to return to stable levels.

On a separate but related issue, on June 11, 2013, Lehi City Council passed extraordinary water conservation measures for secondary water, also known as pressurized irrigation. These conservation measures call for odd-numbered homes to use residential irrigation on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday only. Even-numbered homes may only use residential irrigation on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday. Sundays are for spot watering only. All residential irrigation is prohibited between 10:00 am and 6:00 pm.
