Due to this year's drought conditions, secondary water in the City was shut off on September 20th. The City is asking all other residents and businesses (who use culinary water) to stop outside watering October 1st.
Eaglewood Golf Course will continue to use a small amount of water - enough to keep the greens on the fairways alive and prevent significant damage on this valuable City asset.
Why are we still watering Eaglewood Golf Course?
Between now and the middle of October, you may see some watering at Eaglewood Golf Course during the night hours. Although the City has asked residents to discontinue outside watering September 20th for residents served by Weber Basin Water Conservancy District and October 1st for all other City utility customers, the Golf Course will continue to use a small amount of water – enough to keep the greens on the fairways alive.
Eaglewood Golf Course is a multi-million dollar City asset. While our groundskeepers will water as little as possible, it is critical to the success of the Course that the greens and fairway areas do not suffer permanent damage. Allowing those turf areas to die would be extremely expensive to repair and ultimately use a great deal more water to repair than if they are just maintained in a healthy state.
Please know that Eaglewood Golf Course continues to utilize best water management practices to delicately balance conserving water with protecting this large public asset.
