2017 SECONDARY WATER SEASON IS APRIL 17 TO OCT 13.
Syracuse City provides irrigation water service to its residents. All homes in newer subdivisions have access to secondary water, as connection and impact fees have previously been paid on building permits. City ordinance 4-05-010 prohibits irrigating areas larger than one acre.
A City owned secondary water valve is usually placed in the park-strip in close proximity to the property line. This valve is provided as a point of connection for the customer. However, each resident must provide their own valve to operate their system by. Additionally we recommend that users supply a filtering system in close proximity and downstream of their shut off valve. Tampering with any City owned utility is strictly prohibited.
Please be aware: city ordinances require property owners to maintain access to their own water meter boxes, keeping them clear of weeds and debris. Maintaining these utilities will help crews shut down a broken sprinkler line or damaged plumbing inside the home.
Average water softener calibration in this area is 12 to 16 grains per gallon. For additional water quality information, refer to Weber Basin Water Conservancy District Consumer Confidence Report

Blue Stakes 811
Remember, before you start landscaping, it is a state law to contact Blue Stakes of Utah at least two (2) full business days (48 hours) prior to any digging, to locate and mark utility lines. Requests can be made by dialing 811, Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Blue Stakes is a free service provided by local utility companies. Syracuse City is only responsible for marking City owned utility lines (Culinary and Secondary Water Mains, Sewer Mains, Land Drain Mains, Storm Drain Lines, and City owned Street Lighting). If you suspect that there are additional utilities on your property that have not been marked please contact the utility directly before excavation.
