SALT LAKE CITY — Two more Utah communities are announcing measures to help conserve water. In a tweet sent this week, Herriman City officials say they will temporarily pause new required landscaping through September 15th. This involves new single-family homes, townhouses condos and other commercial projects.

 

Washington Terrace said their water conservation measures include a new concept called ‘Tan is the new Green.’ That means the city will cut back to watering one day a week, two days a week in some high traffic areas and on sports fields. They are asking residents to not exceed 2 days a week in order to conserve water.

“WTC is cutting back to 1 day a week in some areas and 2 days a week on high use sports fields and high traffic areas of the city. Please do not exceed 2 days a week in order to conserve this resource. If you notice a problem with our system please kindly let us know so we can fix the situation quickly,” according to a city Facebook post.

Utah is currently under a record-breaking drought, already with triple digits temperatures across the Wasatch Front with less than a week until it is officially summer.
