Herbert issues executive order on water


SALT LAKE CITY — Utah Gov. Gary Herbert ordered all state agencies to curb water use by upgrading irrigation systems, implementing leak-detection devices where possible, and prohibiting outdoor watering during daytime hours.

Herbert's order includes a 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. ban on watering landscapes. In addition, state-owned and managed facilities also must:

• Replace inefficient plumbing fixtures with low-flow fixtures.

• Audit and repair all landscape systems so they are operating efficiently.

• Implement leak detection and repair systems for both indoor and outdoor use.

• Evaluate areas where turf can be replaced.
