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.
