    How to Report Water Use Abuse

    • There are several avenues you can pursue to report alleged water use abuse. Please use the following guidelines to make the process easier:
    • First, be sure water use abuse is actually occurring. Many times what may seem to be water use abuse may actually have a very reasonable explanation. For instance, driving by a business with their water running in the daytime may indicate that workers are on the scene adjusting or fixing sprinkler heads, scheduling run times, or other maintenance issues.
    • Once you are sure water use abuse is occurring, please contact the water agency responsible for water in that area. Water agencies have the authority to enforce good watering practices.

    Schools and universities usually fall under the jurisdiction of the local water agency, and not the state government.

    If you cannot find the agency responsible for water in the area of the water use abuse, or if you see a violation involving a government facility, please contact the state Water Conservation Coordinator – Eric Klotz, [email protected], 801-538-7264.

    Estimated depth of well water: A review of a well-drillers log book shows a well located approximately 1,700 feet southeast of the Silver Willow Pond and approximately at the same elevation of 6510′ above sea level, reported the depth to ground water in the well at approximately 45 feet below ground surface (bgs). Ground water slopes to the north-northeast where elevation decreases. However, local gradients may vary significantly.Silver Springs Community consists of three man-made ponds (lakes). Silver Willow Lake, Silver Willow Pond, and Silver Minnow Pond. The nearest natural surface water bodies are two perennial streams (White Pine and Spring Creek) which converge at the underground point of Silver Springs Drive and Hwy. 224, located approximately 800 feet south of the Upper Lake (Silver Willow Pond) and approximately 2,400 feet east of the Lower Lake (Silver Willow Lake). These lakes are fed by Spring Creek which flows to Spring Creek which flows north to join East Canyon Creek.—See Park City West, Utah USGS Quadrangle, 1998.
