On Studio 5, Clifton Smith, Garden manager with Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District, provided samples and invites you to a special event.
Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District has won numerous contests against other water districts for having the best tasting water in the state of Utah. In September 2007, Jordan Valley swept the first Intermountain Section American Water Works Association taste test, beating 12 other water samples submitted from treatment plants in the Intermountain Region, which helped them advance to the national taste test in June.
This June, Jordan Valley came in third in that competition.
Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District is asking everyone to be water-wise. On June 14, everyone is invited to not only sample the great water from Jordan Valley but also attend the Jordan Valley Garden Fair. When you visit the Jordan Valley booth at the Conservation Garden Park in West Jordan, you can taste water A and B. For those who guess the correct sample, they will be entered to win a grand prize at the end of the event.
The theme for the June Garden Fair at Jordan Valley is “Water-wise Plant Selection”. Visitors will have the opportunity to speak with vendors, experts, and design consultants on how to make their yard or landscape water-wise, yet still be able to have full and beautiful plants.
During the fair, you’ll see plants that would be available. They are colorful, can make great additions to any landscape and are water-wise. Featured on Studio 5 were the lavendar and Russian sage plants. There will also be numerous classes on lawn-care, gardening, landscaping and more.
Activities for the family include music, great food, clowns, a free climbing wall and science activities for kids. The event will run June 14 from 8 AM to 2 PM at the Conservation Garden Park at Jordan Valley in West Jordan, at 8215 South 1300 West. The event is free to the public.
