A Word From the Mayor
Update on the water situation The water situation in Hyde Park is serious. Often when we as a City try to encourage water conservation, we receive some interesting and varied responses.
1) “If the City didn't allow more growth it wouldn't be an issue”.
2) “If the Church, City or my neighbor is not doing all they should then I am not going to either”.
3) “ I am just going to continue to use water & ignore the request”.
Fortunately, many of you have gone above and beyond to conserve water and I am grateful for your response.
Our most pressing issue is not that the City doesn't have water, just that we can’t get it to you as fast as you are using it. We are in the process of building a new water tank, adding new water lines and increasing pumping capacity. However, it takes time and will not be completed this summer.
For those who are above the Lion’s Park water tank in elevation, you may soon find that you and your neighbors have a choice to make; if you want to have drinking water, water to cook and clean, or fire protection, conservation is a necessity. Those who chose to use up the available water will affect all.
Utah Gov. Spencer Cox issued a second executive order in June declaring a state of emergency as Utah continues to face severe drought conditions.
