Nancy Hardman is with the Governor’s Water Conservation Team and she knows the way to determine exactly how much water you should be giving your lawn.
What is a Water Check?
A Water Check analyzes the efficiency of your automated sprinkler system. A horticulture intern will perform the Water Check at your home and provide you with a customized watering schedule.
The tests that will be performed include soil type, grass root depth, sprinkler distribution uniformity and water pressure. The entire process will take approximately one hour.
When and where are they available?
Water Checks are available from June through August in the following counties: Davis, Duchesne, Garfield, Juab, Piute, Salt Lake, Uintah, Utah, Wasatch, Washington, and Weber.
How much does it cost?
The Water Check Program is a free service.
How do I sign up?
You can schedule an appointment by signing up online at www.slowtheflow.org or by calling 1-877-728-3420.
The water check program is sponsored by: Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District, Central Utah Water Conservancy District, Washington County Water Conservancy District, Sandy City, Murray City, Salt Lake City and Utah State University.
Who sponsors the Slow the Flow campaign?
