It will focus on conditions in the district, including reservoir levels and snowfall delivered on the spot. It’s coming soon every Wednesday to Central Utah Water Conservancy District’s Facebook page.
“We’re going to talk about the things people want to know, the seasonal water needs we’re all closely watching,” Hoyt said. “The focus is what we see happening in our own district.”
Here’s what to watch for in the coming year:
