Friday, July 2 - The WCWCD (water district) is putting river water back in their lines, slowly increasing water pressure. As theirs increases so will La Verkin's. Even though the district's line beomces fully pressurized doesn't mean that our system will handle the turbidity (silt, gravel, debris).La Verkin's turbidity level needs to be under 500 so it doesn't overwork our motors. Currently the measure is over 1,500. This means that our irrigation system may need to be turned off without notice. Over the last few years, the city has had to replace expensive motors for this reason. The city is asking for residents' patience as water is safely brought back into the line permanently.
Tuesday, June 30 - The Washington County Water Conservancy District has taken the irrigation water out of the line until further notice. This is due to dirty water, silt and debris in the water after the flash flood in Zion National Park and Springdale. We will notify citizens as soon as it is turned back on.
