Water Conservation


Snowpack in 2021 in Thaynes Canyon was near a record low with only 2012 and 2015 being lower.  Snowpack peaked at less than 70% of the median year as of Early April 2021.  In addition, on March 17, 2021 Governor Cox issued a State of Emergency in Utah due to Statewide drought conditions
