In the fall of 2021, residents of Jordan River, Shirley & Otter Point were asked about water conditions for their home. The survey asked questions on water source(s), water uses, how things have changed over the years and if residents are prepared in case of a summer drought.
The results were interesting when compared with previous surveys from 2013 and 2014.
Based on the results, reliable water is a growing concern in the region, but more scientific data is required to provide clear certainty of a clean safe drinking supply for the population.
Recommendations from the survey:
- At least one well monitor on each aquifer in the Otter Point to Jordan River Region
- Incentives/training to put in place rainwater catchment system on new and existing homes
- Assessment of new developments based on available water in the region
