Benchland water District

During the summer of 1967, Le Grande Gregory then serving as Mayor of Farmington City, contacted Aaron Richards telling Aaron that something must be done to correct the waste water and open ditch irrigation problems in the community.  He asked Aaron to attempt to get the open ditch stock irrigation companies to cooperate in instituting a pressurized underground irrigation system to replace the open ditches.  As a result of this request and with Mayor Gregory's encouragement a committee was organized with that objective as its purpose.  Committee representation was composed of individuals nominated and sponsored by each of the irrigation companies and a representative from Farmington City.  Aaron Richards served as Chairman of the Committee. 

The sponsoring organizations jointly funded an engineers feasability study and held public meetings as well as engaged in extensive dialogue and debate for two years.  They concluded their work by petitioning the Davis County Board of Commissioners to create an irrigation improvement district under the legal statutes of the State of Utah.  On October 1, 1969 the Farmington Area Pressurized Irrigation District, aka "FAPID", became a legal entity (renamed Benchland Water District in January 2006).  The first regular pressurized service was provided beginning April 28, 1978.

 The Importance of Water Conservation


Do not water your sidewalks, driveways or roadways; even in a good water year. Everyone benefits when we conserve water.
 No Watering Between 10am & 6pm


Do not water the landscape from 10am until 6pm beacause of the increased evaporation during the hotest part of the day. 
 Do Not Over Water


Use the water you need, but need the water you use. 

Benchland Water District is asking for your assistance in conserving water during this upcoming water season by doing the following:

•Reduce Pressurized Irrigation Water usage by 20%
•No outside watering between 10:00 am and 6:00 pm
•Spot irrigate dry spots rather than over-irrigating the whole area
•Fix broken sprinklers and adjust so you are not watering the pavement.
•Water when it is cool.  This reduces evaporation.
•DO NOT water every day.  Refer to residential lawn watering guide.
•Watering less develops deep roots and healthier turf.

We can get through this irrigation season if everybody does their part.  Use what you need, but need what you use.

Thank you,

Benchland Water District Trustees
