The following is a press release Eagle Mountain City, Utah via Facebook.

Eagle Mountain City is asking our residents to participate in a voluntary water conservation measure by turning off your sprinkler systems for the next three nights (July 3-5). This action is requested due to one of the City’s wells currently being down for repair because of a motor failure. The well is expected to be back in use by early next week. Although we have sufficient water levels for fire suppression at this time, we are taking this proactive step to keep water levels high until the well is back in service.

The City has been working in cooperation with The Ranches HOA to limit watering of parks, medians, and park strips, except where there are new plant materials. Thus, you may be noticing these areas looking drier than usual. Likewise, we understand that residents with new sod or other landscaping may not be able to turn off sprinkler systems for the entire period of this water conservation measure. Anyone with established lawns who is willing to participate is appreciated.

The splash pad at Nolan Park will continue to have revised hours (10 a.m. to 8 p.m.) through Monday, July 9. Please discuss with your children the importance of not activating the water at the splash pad unless they are playing there. The water is on a shortened timer until next week.

Finally, please remember to follow the City’s watering ordinance and don’t run outside water between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. This is particularly important because of record-breaking dry and hot temperatures we are experiencing.
