According to the United States Census Bureau, the population of Utah is expected to exceed 6.8 million by 2060, more than double the 3.1 million population figures released in 2018. Companies such as Granger-Hunter Improvement District are planning for the future of Utah’s water supply and consumption.
They can’t do it alone, it has to be a team effort with Granger-Hunter working closely with the public to ensure the water supply will keep up with growth.
How can you help? Three words … Slow the Flow.
Stands to reason that if there is a population explosion, then there has to be a campaign for conservation of resources. There are things you can do now to adjust for the future:
Granger-Hunter is doing its part as well.
Granger-Hunter Improvement District, which provides customers in the West Valley City area with high-quality and reliable drinking water and safely collects the area’s sanitary wastewater, is working with the other six entities that rely on the Central Valley Water Reclamation Facility to treat their customer’s wastewater to make more than $250 million in improvements to the plant in the next 20 years.
For the average customer, there was a much-needed $5 per month rate increase in order to ensure the completion of the facility by 2025 and to meet compliance issues. It’s an investment for Utah’s future.
Whether you’re enjoying your lawn with a backyard pool party or hitting the slopes for a skiing respite, you certainly don’t want the F.O.G. to roll in. Well, OK, it’s not really fog Granger-Hunter wants on your mind. It’s F.O.G. — or Fats, Oils and Grease. Did you know when you pour fats, oils and grease from food waste, scraps and cooking down a drain, it can clog pipes and cause sewer backups? It also hinders Granger-Hunter’s active and ongoing Pretreatment Program. A key element of the Pretreatment Program includes staff working with industrial and commercial customers to remove F.O.G. from the public wastewater system.
