Business community supports idea of Water Conservancy District for Cache County

Efforts to form a Water Conservancy District in Cache County got a boost Tuesday night at a joint meeting of the Cache County and Logan Municipal Councils. Sandy Emile, the Cache Chamber of Commerce president and CEO, said the organization, which includes just under 600 members from the business community, has come out in support of a local district.

She said the Board of Directors and other members have spent many hours over the last six months reviewing information, attending meetings and otherwise, becoming educated about water conservancy districts and the need for one in Cache County.

“Cache County has to worry about not just today. We have to have a vision for tomorrow,” said Emile. “It’s about growing our businesses and having water to do that. It’s about growing residential areas. You have to have water for families and homes.

“And about preserving our agricultural interests in this community which weigh greatly on Cache County’s responsibility and our part in the state for its economy.”

Emile said the Board of Directors took a vote on the issue on August 28th and the result was unanimous approval of a Water Conservancy District.
