SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Salt Lake City fire thanks residents following the ban of fireworks saying it was a relatively quiet weekend.
Officials say in extreme cases the state could impose water rationing and are asking folks to be mindful on how they use water.
Authorities also explain they are seeing an increased amount of people wanting to save water, including making changes to their lawn.
“Obviously the drought is really moving things a long this year, a lot of interest in it, and the great thing is when your remove lawn from the landscape which requires water every few days during the summertime,”
Courtney Brown Conservation Programs manager says. “You are drought proofing your landscape to some degree.”
The state and the Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District has rebates in place to incentivize saving water.
Officials say more people than ever before are applying for these rebates to both earn money and save water.
