The City adopted new irrigation water rates effective July 1, 2015. The rates are tied to the water meters that were installed prior to the adoption of these rates. The purpose of the new rates and meters are to encourage residents to conserve one of Utah's most valuable resources, water. 

A base rate is charged year round to cover some of the City's fixed costs in the water department. This will result in a significantly lower water bill during the non-irrigation months. The rest of the rates will be charged based upon water usage. Each lot is assigned an allotment of water. This allotment is based upon how much water was purchased for that lot at development. The rates increase higher as you use more of your allotment.

City Irrigation Calculator

The City has created an irrigation calculator to help customers determine their monthly irrigation water allotment and estimate the cost of their bill. View the City Irrigation Calculator, which is a google spreadsheet and then you can make a copy when the page appears. You will need a Google account to access the spreadsheet. You'll be able to enter your lot size to determine your monthly water allotment. You can also estimate what your bill would be at different water usage amounts.

Example of the Irrigation Calculator


New Rates (Effective July 1, 2015)

Single Family Residential Base Fee: $16.25 per quarter acre (reduced from $26.18 per quarter acre).

Non-single Family Residential Base Fee: $65 per irrigable acre. This fee includes commercial, industrial, institutional, condominiums, city parks, HOA parks, or any other non-single family property that the City has a record of the irrigable acreage of the property.

Water Allotment

The allotments are calculated as follows:

  • Single Family Residential monthly allotment (in thousand gallons): Gross lot acreage multiplied by 108.793732.
  • Non-single Family Residential monthly allotment (in thousand gallons): Irrigable lot area multiplied by 152.99127.

For example, a 1/4 acre lot would have an allotment of 27.2 thousand gallons (0.25 multiplied 108.793732).
