CEDAR HILLS — The city is seeking volunteers to participate in a water conservation committee. In August, the city reported a pressurized irrigation consumption rate of 1.2 billion gallons to date this year.

This is, based on the state recommended outdoor water usage, enough water for 9,160 homes. Cedar Hills currently has 2,550 homes. The city was forced to supplement the system with culinary water from city wells to meet irrigation demands.

The intent of forming a committee is to create a communication campaign and policy for Cedar Hills that will balance the needs of residents with responsible consumption.

Those interested in serving on the committee can contact Mayor Gary Gygi or City Manager David Bunker at 801-785-9668, or email frontdesk@cedarhills.org.
