Cache County Executive Craig Buttars says he is hoping that 2016 will be the year for a Water Conservancy District to be formalized in Cache County. Buttars says the county council agrees with him that getting a district in place is the number one goal and steps are already taking place to make that happen in time to have the issue before voters in November.
Buttars says the formation of a working group to help inform the public about the concept and the advantages of a water conservancy district will happen soon.
“Planning for water is a critical need that we have in the future,” he continues. “I think a water conservancy district offers us the best way that we can work on the state and county level to provide for our needs for water in the future.”
He is hoping that work in this area will begin at the first council meeting of the year on Tuesday, January 12.
