DAVIS COUNTY, Utah (ABC4) – If you are a customer of the Davis and Weber Canal Company, heads up – extreme drought conditions are causing a secondary water shutdown.
The company says the secondary water systems will be shut off on September 1, 2021 – or sooner – if water use increases.
“Please reduce your secondary water use, limit watering to twice a week, and plan accordingly for this early shutdown (please no new landscapes),” the alert from the Davis and Weber Counties Canal Company says. “Please do not create a cross-connection which will jeopardize drinking water systems.”
The alert, which you can read above, includes a watering schedule, which depends on what your house number ends in:
- 0, 1, 2, 3: Water on Monday and Thurday
- 4, 5, 6: Water on Tuesday and Friday

According to Davis and Weber Counties Canal Company, it is recommended that you water once on your scheduled day, except between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.
