SARATOGA SPRINGS, Utah — Culinary water pressure has dropped in the south end of Saratoga Springs and they now have a long term plan according to a Facebook post from the city.

On June 1, the city announced in a Facebook post that a secondary water well in the south had failed. The post then went on to say that residents in the south were advised to water when pressure was available, typically between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m.

A second update was posted on June 6 stating that an increased amount of culinary water supplementing of the irrigation system has been happening in the south end of the city.

On Tuesday June 21, the city updated their Facebook page with a post stating that the city is aware of the situation and crews are still working to get the pressures restored as quickly as possible.

A few hours later another post on the page stated that the city now has a long term plan in place as they installed a pressure valve and is in process of entering a temporary water purchasing contract with Central Utah Water Conservancy District through the remainder of the summer.

The post then went on to thank the residents for their patience and conservation.
