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.
