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.
