Secondary Water Provider Conservation Plans
Secondary water providers are required to submit a Water Conservation Plan (WCP) before they can receive funding from the Board of Water Resources. Below are resources for secondary water providers for creating a water conservation plan:
These plans are NOT the same as the water conservation plans that conservancy districts and water systems with over 500 connections are required to submit every five years. However, if your system has submitted a WCP for over 500 connections in the last five years, it does meet the WCP requirement for board funding.
The Division of Water Resources provides digital conservation and educational materials for all secondary water providers to distribute to their users. To request materials, fill out this form.
If you declare exemption and were approved for ARPA grant funds allocated by the Board of Water Resources, please fill out the Release of Funds form releasing all or part of the ARPA funds.
Exempt Water Conservation Plans
All systems under Subsections 9 and 10 are required to submit a WCP within six months of exempt status. Exempt WCPs will be subject to evaluation of its effectiveness at the end of each irrigation season and given recommended changes to improve its effectiveness.
Subsection 13 (Division of Water Rights)
Secondary systems seeking exemption under Utah Code 73-10-34 Subsection 13 must do so through the Division of Water Rights. Their application can be found here. It is recommended you contact your regional engineer in addition to completing the application.
