Conservation Plan Resources

Utah’s water providers and suppliers are diligent in continually improving efficiency efforts to conserve water. Every five years, systems with over 500 connections must submit a water conservation plan to the Utah Division of Water Resources to comply with the Water Conservation Act. These plans contain existing and proposed water conservation measures that outline how the entity and the end culinary water user will conserve water, limit or reduce per capita consumption, ensure adequate water supplies are available for future needs and meet Regional Water Conservation Goals. The division reviews these plans and provides assistance as systems work to improve water efficiency. Systems that do not submit a water conservation plan every five years are considered non-compliant and are ineligible for state loans or funding.
