Water-Wise Community Efforts
If you have not done so already, please take a few minutes to read about The Conservancy’s efforts in making Promontory a water-wise community. Please note that our Design Guidelines have been updated to reflect new requirements for water-wise landscaping as well. There is a lot that you can do to slow the flow.

New This Week

Please take a few moments to read the link below on tips and strategies to protect your home/homesite in the event of a wildfire.
In Case You Missed It
Home Sprinkling Systems
As we all know, water is in short supply. Water Agencies are in the process of determining how we can proceed as summer approaches. Please refrain from charging any sprinkling systems until specific dates and guidelines have been released from water authorities. As soon as the Conservancy is apprised of such dates and deadlines, an announcement will be made.
Thank you for your cooperation with this matter.
Asphalt & Road Repairs
As the ground warms up, it has become evident that some portions of the roads are in need of repair. Asphalt crews have begun to make repairs and will continue to address problem areas over the coming weeks. Thank you for your patience regarding these improvements.
Cleaning Muddy Roads
Springtime in Utah offers wonderful weather, the sounds of songbirds, and beautiful scenery. Springtime also means melting snow and possible mud. As our community grows, mud and dust may be disturbed and tracked onto our roads. The Conservancy crews and contractors are doing all they can to keep the roadways as clean as possible. We thank you for your patience and understanding and assure you clean roads are a very high priority.
Recycling & Garbage Reminder
Please use your own garbage and recycling containers for garbage and recyclable materials. If you have more than your containers can handle, please DO NOT dispose of trash or recyclable materials in any dumpsters or trash bins located in Promontory. This includes but is not limited to dumpsters or bins near club facilities and construction sites.
- Momentum Recycling offers at home glass recycling pick-up for $12/month! For more information & to sign-up click here.
- Recyclable materials can be taken to Recycle Utah in Park City. Information can be found here.
- For excess household garbage, Summit County has a landfill located east of Promontory. Information for the Three Mile Canyon Landfill can be found here.
Trash Pick up
On trash pickup day, please keep all trash inside your dumpster, with the lid closed. Please DO NOT leave cardboard boxes, furniture, or anything else that won’t fit in the dumpster on the ground – the truck drivers will not stop to collect anything outside the dumpster.
If your weekly trash is more than will fit in your dumpster, please contact Republic Services (435-615-8311) for another dumpster.
Some years ago Summit County created a system to provide phone, email, and text messages regarding emergencies. The system was upgraded such that anyone who previously signed up will need to sign up again.
The alert center also provides information about non-emergency matters in and about Summit County.
