August 4th Secondary Water Q & A and Listening Session
2016 Secondary Water User Notice - Effective July 21, 2016 - Click here to view the presentation
Syracuse City has been experiencing high demands on the secondary water system. Water supply is at its full allocation and is set at maximum flow rates entering the system. Water demand is controlled by users and is exceeding the supply of water. When reservoirs are low, there is not enough water in the system to maintain pressure in the tank, which is affecting a vast majority of the city. Syracuse City is asking all of our water users to implement water conservation practices by watering two days each week at 20 to 30 minutes per setting. Any two days of the week may be selected except Wednesday. Wednesday will be a mandatory no watering day city-wide in order to allow our reservoirs to refill.
We strongly recommend that good judgment be used when utilizing secondary water. We have included some simple considerations that may help us be more responsible in conserving this precious resource.
1. Apply water anytime between 6:00 PM and 10:00 AM when temperatures are lower.
2. Adjust water sprinklers and spray heads to prevent overspray that is wasted into the gutters, streets and storm drains.
3. Periodically check for leaks in the sprinkler system and make repairs as necessary.
4. Hose watering should not be left unattended.
5. Turn off sprinklers during moderate to high winds, during and immediately after rainstorm downpours as well as mild rainstorm events lasting more than 20 minutes.
6. Small garden areas may be supplemented more frequently with water using conscientious efforts to remain attentive.
7. New landscape areas and areas where grass must be established from seed are able to responsibly apply water more frequently, as needed.
In working together to voluntarily conserve and help our neighbors understand ways to conserve water, we can protect this precious resource. You may learn more about ways to conserve by visiting Weber Basin’s conservation garden as well as their website: http://www.weberbasin.com/conservation/.
