DISTRICT STUDYING WATER CONSERVATION

SHARE DISTRICT STUDYING WATER CONSERVATION

The Washington County Water Conservancy District expects to have a water-conservation plan by this fall, said Morgan Jensen, the district's environmental coordinator.

Jensen told the Utah Board of Water Resources Friday in Cedar City that the district will use information collected by a citizens committee that has spent more than a year investigating water management practices and alternatives.Residents, farmers and business owners may find more water-efficient devices and systems in use to help save water and cut down on waste in the future.

Some ideas tossed about so far include low-water-use plants for homes and businesses, more efficient irrigation systems and reuse of treated wastewater.
