Please water wisely. When it rains, turn your sprinkler system off.
We will also have the following Water Restrictions.
As always, no watering is allowed from 10:00 am-6:00 pm on any day.
This one right now is on a voluntary basis. We hope our residents will follow the recommended watering schedule to help conserve the water. We are requesting our residents to water their yards every other day. This rotation will have you watering three to four times a week as a maximum.
If your house number is an odd number, you will water on odd calendar days.
If your house number is an even number, you will water on even calendar days.
Salem City has had a few residents express a concern over the watering on odd/even days, because they believe their sprinkler system clock does not have the capability to be programed for odd/even days. We thank you for letting us know about your concern. When looking into the sprinkler clocks, a vast majority of clocks do have the ability to be programed for odd/even days, especially if they are not older than 20 - 25 years. If you do have one of those clocks, there are rebates available from the Central Utah Water Conservancy District (http://www.cuwcd.com) to help with the cost of a new, more efficient clock. If you are still unable to make the changes, either on your current clock or purchase a new one, please let us know (801-423-2770) and we can have someone come and look at your current clock. We are still asking that you honor the current voluntary water restrictions. We thank you for your efforts and we do understand your concern and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
We recognize that we will have a hiccup with those months that have 31 days (May, July, Aug). We are asking that the 31st of those months be recognized as a NO WATER DAY. The City will send out reminders as those days approach. We will inform our citizens if we find that greater restrictions are necessary.
Please do your part to help us conserve!
