On March 17, 2021 Gov. Spencer J. Cox issued an executive order declaring a state of emergency due to drought conditions. As you may be aware, 100% of Utah is in drought. 2020 was one of the hottest and driest summers on record, our snowpack was well below average this year, and soil moisture is at an all-time low. We believe taking action now is critical – especially because we don’t know how long the drought conditions will continue.

Since most of the Hooper Water Improvement District’s customers have secondary water that is managed by Weber Basin Water Conservancy District, we would like to provide the following information. Weber Basin Water Conservancy District has requested that all consumers conserve water. They have set a goal of 20% less usage for outdoor watering and irrigation purposes. This will mean that the irrigation water season will end on October 1, 2021.
In keeping with this executive order, Hooper Water Improvement District would like to provide the following information and recommendations:
- Culinary water is more difficult and expensive to provide than secondary water
- Those using Culinary water for outdoor uses be conservative in your water use
- Be conscientious in how and when you use water
- It is suggested that you water twice a week and during the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.
Our water supply is continually being placed under increasing demand due to population growth and climatological impacts. Consequently, it will take a collaborative and innovative effort from all of us to provide for a continued high quality of life and sustainable water supply.
More information is available at the following resources:
We are happy to announce that our website has undergone a transformation. It is now easier to sign up for water, find construction information and pay your bill. The District is still contracted with xpressbillpay.com for your convenience to pay your bill electronically. They also provide an autopay service.
The Consumer Confidence Reports are also available on our website. These reports provide information about the quality of our water and ways that it can be protected.
Another point of particular interest is the Cross-Connection Control section. It provides information about the potential causes and hazards of connecting a culinary water system with another source of potentially unclean water. Potential issues arise from garden hoses hooked to the house and left in a water trough, sprinkler systems that have “swing connections,” and sprinkler systems that don’t have a proper backflow device. A list of devices and their proper uses can be found on our website as well.
