LAYTON – Snow pack at 100 percent of normal on Monday was “unprecedented,” said Weber Basin Water Conservancy District General Manager Tage Flint.
He recalled how snow pack was at just 59 percent of normal four weeks ago, in early to mid-February.
That snow pack doesn’t translate into all water woes being over, Flint emphasized.
“That doesn’t translate into 100 percent runoff,” he said. “It’s so dry, we’re still around 75 percent of normal runoff. But compared to where we thought we’d be a month ago, it’s really welcomed.”
Conservation measures will still be a necessity, but “a lot less restrictions, if any” on water use should be needed for farmers and other large water users, Flint said.
