[ARCHIVED] Beyond Snowmageddon: Why Residents Should Still Conserve

The Snow Covered Bald Mountain in Utah

Last year was dry in the State of Utah and the City of South Jordan, with most of the state classified as being in “extreme” or “exceptional” drought for the year. This year has been remarkable regarding the amount of snow and moisture, which is excellent for our near-future water supply. But even with this significant snowpack, the city and state will still be in a drought for years. It will take multiple years of higher-than-average snowpack and conserving water to return our state to non-drought conditions.

While we can’t control the amount of snow we receive each winter, we can control how we use our precious water. South Jordan offers many rebates to help you, our residents, conserve and save water in your homes and yards. We encourage all residents to be mindful of all water use, whether culinary or secondary water supply.

The City has three turf grass-removal rebates to help you remove or replace high-water-use grass with beautiful conservation-minded landscapes. These rebates are for hardscape, curbing, and water-wise plants. By taking advantage of all three rebates, you can receive more than $1,000 for material to help convert your space to be water-wise.

South Jordan also offers two rebates for fixtures and toilets inside the home! Toilets are a leading cause of indoor leaks and high-water use. Replacing outdated (1992 or older) high-flow toilets with new and efficient low-flow toilets is a great way to conserve. Also, you can replace high-flow fixtures (2005 or older) with low-flow “Water Sense” fixtures.

Two excellent resources to check out are the Water Customer Portal (sjc.utah.gov/wateruse) and WaterSmartSoJo.org. The Water Customer Portal is a helpful tool tracking monthly, daily, and hourly water usage. The Water Smart SoJo website offers resources and information on services the City provides to help you conserve water.

Residents have done a great job conserving water over the last few years. If we continue these efforts and save even more water in 2023, we will help ensure the water supply for our city and future generations.
