MANDATORY WATERING RESTRICTIONSPosted: July 12, 2021
From Gorgoza Mutual Water Company July 10, 2021
Following guidance from the State of Utah and Summit County, Gorgoza Mutual Water Company is implementing mandatory watering restrictions effective immediately. Gorgoza’s water resources remain adequate to meet demand, however, in response to Utah’s extreme drought conditions and to prepare for a possible long-term drought cycle, restrictions have become necessary as follows:
- Even-numbered addresses only water Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
- Odd-numbered addresses only water Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.
- No watering Sunday to allow wells to recharge.
While no more than three days per week is mandatory, Gorgoza strongly urges all shareholders, especially those at higher elevations and on north-facing slopes or heavily shaded lots, to voluntarily commit to watering only two days per week as follows:
- Even-numbered addresses only water Monday and Friday.
- Odd-numbered addresses only water Tuesday and Saturday.
The Ecker Hill Middle School and Homeowner Associations will be contacted directly and placed on watering schedules more specific to their needs and location. In addition, spring water deliveries to Mount Olympus Water have been reduced by 50%. (Please note, spring water revenue has funded several infrastructure projects over the years, and Pinebrook uses the same amount of water in one summer day as is delivered to Mount Olympus Water in about four months.)
All watering must be on the day specified, whether in the early morning or late evening, but not during daylight hours. Noncompliance with the mandatory watering schedules, excessive usage, or unrepaired leaks may result in the assessment of monetary penalties.
If you haven’t already done so, please sign up for a free WaterSmart account on Gorgoza’s website or visit www.gorgozawater.watersmart.com to actively monitor your water usage and be alerted of potential water leaks. It is a valuable tool to help monitor and control your water usage.
Thank you very much for your cooperation and understanding.
August Board MeetingPosted: July 7, 2021
The next regularly schedule board meeting will be held Tuesday, August 17th at 6pm at the offices of Gorgoza Mutual Water Company at 7950 Pinebrook Road. Members of the Pinebrook HOA are always welcome to attend.
REDUCE YOUR WATER USEPosted: June 17, 2021
It’s no mystery that Utah is in extreme drought and experiencing the hottest temperatures on record. Pinebrook is fortunate to be serviced by Gorgoza Mutual Water Company, which is arguably one of the best water distribution systems in the State of Utah. While their system is exceptional, it is ultimately up to the shareholders to use their water wisely:
- Reduce your usage inside and outside your home: Water use triples between winter months and summer months, and the vast majority of that increase is simply to keep turf grass green. It’s ok if your grass browns a bit, and doing so will save a significant amount of water every month. Maintenance staff for the Ecker Hill Park and Pickleball Park (PHOA properties), have been instructed to cut water use to the point of browning this summer.
- Watering Schedule: Gorgoza is advising watering no more than three days a week: EVEN addresses Monday, Wednesday and Friday and ODD addresses Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. NO WATERING ON SUNDAY. Water only at night or early morning and never during the day. Gorgoza reserves the right to implement further mandatory restrictions as the summer progresses. Gorgoza is monitoring individual usage through their AMI system and shareholders will be notified of high usage and/or potential leaks. Fines may be issued for uncontrolled and excessive water use.
- Individual and HOA usage: If your neighbors are wasting water, talk to them about it. If you have friends located in other HOA’s in Pinebrook, please ask them to speak to their board about reducing water use in their HOA common areas. They should contact Gorgoza Water Co. directly for irrigation scheduling.
- Spring Water Sales: The purchaser has been notified that deliveries will be restricted. For those of you wondering about the quantity of spring water being delivered; the amount of water used by Gorgoza Water Company shareholders in 24 hours during the summer is approximately the same quantity of spring water delivered in two months. On an annual basis, spring water sales are only a fraction of the total production of Gorgoza’s system. However, the revenue generated is about seven times the class A shareholder rate and has funded infrastructure improvements for the past several year as well as the newly implemented AMI (Advanced Meter Infrastructure) System.
- WaterSmart: Please sign up for the WaterSmart app to monitor your water usage in real-time. It’s easy, free and has features that’ll help you detect leaks and reduce water usage which will also reduce your monthly water assessment. For more information and to sign up please follow this link: https://www.gorgozawater.com/watersmart/.
It’s going to be another long, hot summer so it is important that everyone does their part. Thank you for your cooperation!
June Board MeetingPosted: June 10, 2021
The next regularly schedule board meeting will be held LIVE on Tuesday, June 15th at 6pm at the offices of Gorgoza Mutual Water Company at 7950 Pinebrook Road. Members of the Pinebrook HOA are always welcome to attend.
2021 Spring cleanupPosted: April 26, 2021
Dumpsters and wood chipper will be provided by the Pinebrook Master Association and Pinebrook Homeowners Association again this year from Saturday, May 29th to Sunday, June 6th.
They will be in the usual location in the parking lot of the Pinebrook Park. In the past few years, use of the dumpsters has increasingly been abused by non-residents, landscape companies, after-hour dumping in the parking lot (not in the dumpsters), and dumping of toxic and hazardous materials. Crews may implement additional screening and security measures this year to help control and manage the cleanup efforts. Continued abuse could ultimately lead to discontinuation of this highly valued service. Please:
1.) Do not invite your friends in neighboring communities to use Pinebrook’s dumpsters.
2.) All disposed materials must be placed in the dumpsters and wood stacked in marked locations for chipping. Do not dump truckloads of debris in the parking lot for the crews to pick up and dispose of in the dumpsters.
3.) If you hire a landscape company to help with spring cleanup, please make sure they are only acting on your behalf. They are not allowed to dispose of waste and debris from other customers in other neighborhoods.
4.) Do not dump anything toxic or hazardous! NO used appliances, paint, paint rags, tires, propane tanks, chemicals, needles and medical waste, batteries, etc. Save those for Summit County’s Hazard Material Collection events instead.
5.) Do not dump mattresses or box springs.
6.) If you are unable to haul your trees or branches to the park to be chipped, you will need to contact a private chipping service or the Park City Fire District to sign up for their free mobile chipping service. Their schedule will fill quickly, so don’t delay. NEITHER THE PHOA OR PMA PROVIDE MOBILE, CURBSIDE CHIPPING SERVICES.
