    (ST. GEORGE, Utah) - Washington County Water Conservancy District is offering free water checks now through September 30. Water checks provide participants with a suggested irrigation schedule customized for their landscape.

    Interested participants should call 435.673.3617 to schedule an appointment. Representatives from the district will come to your home or business and evaluate your irrigation system’s pressure, distribution, flow and more. The process takes approximately one hour.

    The water district has performed hundreds of water checks since the program was implemented in 2005. “As the drought continues in Southern Utah, it becomes increasingly important to use our water wisely,” said Julie Breckenridge, conservation manager for the district. “More than half of our water is used outdoors making landscape conservation efforts a top priority for the district.”

    Additional resources to help local property owners conserve water outdoors are available on the district’s website, wcwcd.org. The website features information on irrigation system rebate programs, low water use plant options appropriate for our climate and lists local landscapers certified in water conservation practices.
