What is the quality of secondary water?

Secondary water is non-potable water and comes from canals that distribute Utah Lake water. This water is not filtered or treated, often contains debris, and has higher concentrations of suspended solids and total dissolved solid (TDS) which can be harmful to some plants and flowers especially when watered during the heat of the day. The city recommends users install a good filter before the water goes into the pump. Filters should be cleaned and checked regularly.
