Congratulations to Kearns Improvement District for Being Nationally Recognized


The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has honored the Kearns Improvement District with a WaterSense® Excellence in Education and Outreach Award for their promotion of WaterSense and water efficiency in 2022. The District was one of 25 winners nationwide to receive the award. Their efforts included conservation messaging, promotion, education, and outreach to the citizens served by the District (visit www.kearnsid.org/conservation).

“With extreme weather affecting water supplies and quality, saving this precious resource is more important than ever,” said Veronica Blette, Chief, WaterSense Branch. “The 2023 award winners helped Americans look to WaterSense and save not just water, but the energy required to heat and treat it, as well as reduce greenhouse gas emissions associated with energy use.”

WaterSense, a voluntary partnership sponsored by EPA, is both a label for water efficient products, programs, and homes and a resource for helping consumers learn ways to save water. More than 2,100 manufacturers, builders, retailers, utilities, government, and nonprofit organizations partner with WaterSense to promote water-efficient products, homes, and programs.

Water and energy bills. These savings also helped prevent 337 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions, which is equivalent to planting 5.6 billion trees.

October Event: Tour South Davis WWTP South

Join us for a tour of the South Davis Sewer District (SDSD) Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP).

The facility recently had a full plant upgrade and added a moving bed bioreactor (MBBR) to treat ammonia. It is treating a significant industrial flow along with residential wastewater. Its discharge goes to the Jordan River wetlands and eventually, the Great Salt Lake.

Lunch will be served at the Sewer District Administration Building before a brief presentation by Matt Myers, PE, General Manager of South Davis Sewer District and Lanese Hendrickson, PE, Assistant General Manager of South Davis Sewer District. After the presentation, we will tour the wastewater facility.
