In accordance with outlying neighborhoods, Bear Lake West Water is now asking property owners to water lawns to survive and not thrive. We suggest watering two times per week from 20 minutes each zone for fixed sprinkler systems and 40 minutes for all other type rotary sprinklers. No watering should be done from 10AM until 6PM. Operators are trying to maintain full or nearly full tanks in case of an emergency situation.
