Serve Daily - - EMPOWERING LIBERTY - By Payson Mayor Rick Moore

Our wa­ter year is look­ing great so far. We just en­er­gized our pres­sur­ized ir­ri­ga­tion this week. The city coun­cil has im­ple­mented the fol­low­ing watering sched­ule for 2017:

- Res­i­dents shall wa­ter with the pres­sur­ized sr­ri­ga­tion sys­tem three times per week as set forth be­low:

- All wa­ter users with odd num­bered ad­dresses shall wa­ter only on Mon­days, Wed­nes­days and Fri­days.

- All wa­ter users with even num­bered ad­dresses shall wa­ter only on Tues­days, Thurs­days and Satur­days.

- Watering times are from mid­night to 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. to mid­night. It is rec­om­mended that pop-up sprin­kler heads op­er­ate at 20 min­utes or less and ro­tat­ing sprin­kler heads op­er­ate at 30 min­utes or less.

- Large wa­ter users, churches, schools, city parks and larger agri­cul­tural users will wa­ter dur­ing the day­time hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on days that co­in­cide with ad­dress re­stric­tions listed above. To ac­com­mo­date pub­lic use and sched­uled events, some city-owned parks and sports fields will mod­ify their watering sched­ules.

- There shall be NO watering on Sun­days, as this al­lows the sys­tem to re­cover.

There shall be no hard-sur­face wash­ing of drive­ways and park­ing lots.

- It is un­law­ful for any pres­sur­ized ir­ri­ga­tion user to waste wa­ter by im­per­fect stop-taps, valves, leaky joints or pipes. Wa­ter shall not be wasted by al­low­ing wa­ter to run from hose bibs, ex­ces­sive watering, open pipes or other ap­pa­ra­tus, or to use the wa­ter in such a man­ner as to cause it to over­flow into the neigh­bor­ing yards, prop­er­ties, streets or side­walks.

On May 6, we will have our sev­enth an­nual Pay it For­ward 5K/1 Mile event. To reg­is­ter, visit www.paysonu­tah.org. Great prizes will be awarded. Come and join this grow­ing event.

The 33rd An­nual Scot­tish Fes­ti­val will take place July 7 and 8. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit www.payson­scot­tish­fes­ti­val.org. Other events this sum­mer in­clude the 63rd An­nual Salmon Sup­per on Aug. 4 from 5 to 8 p.m. and the Payson City Golden Onion Days cel­e­bra­tion from Sept. 1 to 4.
