Compliance Status

In 2004 the benefits of a WCP led the Utah legislature to pass the Utah Water Conservation Plan Act (73-10-32, UCA). This Act requires each water conservancy district and public water system over 500 connections to submit a WCP and update the plan every five years. By law, non-compliant water systems are ineligible for state loans or funding and their names are published in local and state circulated papers. For questions or to verify water conservation plan compliance status, please contact us at 801-538-7230, or email waterwise@utah.gov.

Please follow our easy 3 Steps to Water Conservation Plan Success:

  • Step 1: Use the WCP Checklist and Best Management Practices to meet all the requirements of the law. Send DWRe a WCP DRAFT no later than October 1st.

  • Step 2: DWRe will review your Water Conservation Plan.
    • If the requirements have been met, you will be notified the plan is approved to move forward to Step 3.
    • If the WCP is incomplete, the plan will be returned with the necessary revisions outlined.

  • Step 3: Once the WCP has been approved and adopted send DWRe a copy of the public notice announcement, meeting minutes and adoption signatures certificate no later than December 31st.
