Auto Burglaries:  With school out for the summer and temperatures on the rise, we typically see a spike in residential and auto burglaries. Despite a welcomed decline in these types of crimes so far this season, we’d like to encourage you to continue in your attentiveness in securing your homes, vehicles and belongings. With our recently increased residential patrol saturation and your vigilance, we hope to see this decline in these crimes continue. If you see something suspicious, please contact law enforcement immediately.

So remember, don’t become the easy victim; continue to lock and secure your doors and property at all times. And if you see something out of place or suspicious, report it immediately. Together we can keep South Ogden City a safe place to live, work and play.

Fun Water Facts: Approximately 85 percent of U.S. residents receive their water from public water facilities. The remaining 15 percent supply their own water from private wells or other sources.

Indoor Water Conservation Tip: Don’t flush things down the toilet to dispose of them. Throw away tissues and other bathroom waste in the garbage can, which doesn’t require gallons of water. (The average person in the United States uses anywhere from 80-100 gallons of water per day. Flushing the toilet actually takes up the largest amount of this water.)

Outdoor Water Conservation Tips: Apply water only as fast as the soil can absorb it. Avoid watering between 10:00 am and 6:00 pm and when it is windy. Water dry or brown spots in your lawn by hand. Use a hose rather than running your sprinkler system. This will take care of the brown spots while saving thousands of gallons of water and not overwatering the rest of the entire lawn to take care of the same brown spot.

Every year the Public Works Department flushes and checks all hydrants in the city to ensure hydrants have proper pressure and work properly. Flushing will be during the months of July and August. Below are a few question and answers that may be helpful during the flushing.

Why is the water pressure low? Your water pressure may be low due to the flushing of fire hydrants, which lowers the water pressure in the area that is being tested.

Why is my water discolored? Due to the fire hydrant flushing, customers could experience a temporary discoloration of water, which is due to the unsettling of rust in the water main. Run the cold water for about five minutes– this should clear up the water.

My clothes have been discolored from the rust, what should I do? You should clean them with a rust remover, such as "Iron Out" or "Yellow Out" which are available at most home improvement stores. To avoid this, run water prior to doing laundry or avoid doing laundry if the hydrants on your street is being flushed.

Is the water safe to drink? Yes. If the water would be unsafe for any reason to drink, a boil alert would be issued. Before drinking the water, let the cold water run until it is clear.

If you have any questions, please call the Public Works Department at 801-622-2900.
