Price City Residents Advised to Reduce Outdoor Water Usage by 75%


Price City Press Release

The availability of water this year has been reduced dramatically primarily due to insignificant amounts of snow and rainfall, resulting in minimal reservoir storage. The Price River Water Users Association has set this year’s delivery of Scofield Reservoir water shares at 25%. Reservoir water is what the city uses to meet the demand for outside watering. Use only 25% of your last year’s usage.

Voluntary Water Conservation

Example: Normal watering per station or area
60 minutes
4 times per week
20 minutes twice a week

15 minutes

Water during the cooler time of the day, evening, night and morning, 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Water on Sunday before 6 a.m. and after 10 p.m. to allow the water treatment plant to shut down for maintenance during the day and keep a sustainable reserve in the water tanks.

We made it through the drought of 1992, we can do it again in 2015! Just slow the flow.
