Water district to consumers: Cut usage by at least 50 percent or else
First Published Aug 18 2013 12:01 pm • Last Updated Feb 14 2014 11:32 pm

Residents being served by one Utah water district are being told to drop their usage by at least 50 percent until October.

Consumers affected by the order are those served by the Pine View Water Systems, which is comprised of the Ogden River Water Users Association, the South Ogden Conservation District and the Weber-Box Elder Conservation District.

Pine View Water Systems said it is requiring the reduction because of the "extremely hot and dry summer, water supplies are very low."

If the cuts don’t happen, the water system says it will be out of water by mid-September.

Consumers are asked to cut back watering for the rest of August to once every five days and in September to once a week.

Watering between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. is prohibited, and the water system warns that it will be monitoring water use more closely and excessive watering will not be allowed.

Wasteful watering, or failure to comply with the regulations, will result in the loss of water service for the remainder of the water season and a $500 charge to re-establish service next year, the water system warned.
