The Cache Water District is a little over a year old and on KVNU’s For the People program on Thursday, board chair Jeannie Simmonds said one of the things they’ve done since they were established is to operate and adopt bylaws and the Cache Water Master Plan.
When it comes to that plan, one of the primary goals is education. She said last August they set up a booth at the Cache County Fair and gave away water but also surveyed those who were willing. The results showed that education is a critical component to what they need to accomplish.
“Because I believe that a lot of people think that a water conservancy district comes in and takes everybodys water and that is absolutely not what we’re about,” she said.
Simmonds says the goal is to let cities and towns manage their own water systems. What they are hoping to be able to do is manage the Bear River allocation and do any other projects that will create water savings that can then be allocated, sold or used by other communities that need them.
