Notice:
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.




Culinary Water


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. 


Most water softeners have a setting for grains per gallon. Weber Basin Water district provides water which has a 
hardness range of 6-18 with an average of 14 grains per gallon. Set your softener appropriately, but contact your 
local utility to verify if additional well water is mixed with your water which could alter the hardness. For additional 
remedies you may consult with local professionals that deal with hard water and install water softeners.

Annual Drinking Water Quality Report

Syracuse City does an excellent job of complying with an array or complex regulatory requirements, meeting the same standards as major metropolitan systems without the economies of scale afforded by larger utilities. The public can rest assured their water is safe. If a health issue arises, the public will be notified as required by law. Concerned citizens should contact Syracuse City Public Works first for any questions that may arise regarding water quality.

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 or online at bluestakes.org, 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.
