This is Derek Miller, Speaking on Business. Weber Basin Water Conservancy District serves five counties in northern Utah with water types ranging from agricultural irrigation to drinking water. Tage Flint, CEO of Weber Basin Water Conservancy District is here to tell us more about the district’s innovative service to Utahns.
At Weber Basin Water, we serve over 700,000 northern Utahns from a complex system of large reservoirs, pipelines, wells, hydropower stations, and treatment plants. We lead the state in implementing new secondary water meter technology. The district oversees the collection of hourly usage data from over 12,000 secondary water meters. This data is seamlessly communicated back to our customers through utilization of an in-house developed customer portal. These types of innovative approaches will ensure efficient use of our finite water supplies which are critical to Utah’s future.
Weber Basin Water completed its new Water Efficiency Research Center in Layton, Utah. Open 8 am to 8 pm every day, it is an opportunity to view landscape design to help you with your yard and to learn to use less water. Please stop in for a free and fun visit. Thank you to our employees for their incredible service over the last 15 months. We look forward to serving northern Utahns for many decades to come.
There is no better time to be more careful with our water usage than now. Learn more at weberbasin.com. I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, and this is Speaking on Business.
