ACTION LINE: BHMH responds to irrigation concern

May 28, 2015

Q: I noticed the sprinkler systems have been running every morning along Georgia Street from Arsenal Road to Elm Lane. This started in early April and appears to last from early morning to noon every day. This is a huge waste of water and is completely unnecessary.

Utah is in a severe drought condition with public service announcements and continued news coverage stressing the need to conserve water. Hill AFB should be taking the lead to conserve water.
