SNOW REMOVAL LAW IN ROY
We are now finding ourselves halfway through winter – don’t forget about sidewalk snow removal.
Roy City Code 4-3-1 and 4-3-3(g): ACCUMULATION OF SNOW ON SIDEWALKS: All accumulation of snow, sleet, hail, or other precipitation impairing safe access and use of sidewalks abutting on any public right-of-way of the city which has not been removed within twelve hours from the termination of the depositing storm. The responsible party shall be any person owning, occupying, having control or charge or being an agent over any building, property, lot or partial lot of land abutting said sidewalks.

LEAKS ACCOUNT FOR 1-TRILLION GALLONS OF ANNUAL WATER WASTE
On average each home in the U.S. wastes roughly 11,000 gallons of water each year. In some cases, homes waste 90 gallons each day. Collectively, that equates to over 1 trillion gallons of water wasted each year across the U.S. It can be as simple as a leaky faucet, old piping, leaky toilet, or malfunctioning parts in your plumbing system.
IT ONLY TAKES A DROP
While a slow-dripping faucet or shower head doesn’t seem like a big deal, the amount of water wasted adds up. One drip each second equates to over 3,000 gallons of water wasted annually. If you notice slow drips, look at the washers and gaskets in your faucets. It only takes a quick replacement to stop the leak if they’re worn.
OLD HOMES ARE THE WORST
While older homes have an irreplaceable style and charm, they’re one of the biggest culprits when it comes to water waste. Upgrading dated plumbing fixtures and toilets can save up to 16,000 gallons each year. If your home is over 40 years old, have it retrofitted to save money, reduce the risk of plumbing-related issues, and eliminate water waste.
