FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is secondary water?

Secondary water is an untreated water supply for use on landscape only.  It is non-potable (non-drinkable) and water from this source should NEVER be consumed.  Be advised that this water source should not be used for outdoor recreation such as pools or playing in sprinklers.  Please explain to children the differences between water sources around the home.  A good measure is to paint secondary water taps and spigots a different color to distinguish them from drinking water sources.  Washing with soap and water is advised after coming in contact with secondary water.

What is Roy Water Conservancy District?

Roy Water Conservancy District provides secondary irrigation water only. The delivery system is largely pressurized by gravity, although pumping is required to provide pressure to the east end of the system. Roy Water Conservancy District provides no pressure regulation on the system, so customers must provide their own.

Is Roy Water Conservancy District part of Roy City, Weber Basin Water Conservancy District, or Pineview Water?

Roy Water Conservancy District is a separate public entity, which operates independently of Roy City, even though we work in conjunction with them.  We are not a part of Weber Basin Water Conservancy District, although we have an Operation & Maintenance agreement with them to operate and maintain their West Haven secondary water system.  We are not a part of Pineview Water Systems.

Where does my secondary water come from?

We get our water from the Davis & Weber Counties Canal Company, which gets its water from Echo and East Canyon reservoirs.
