City of La Verkin

Updated Dumpster Days 2019

Washington County now provides two free landfill or dumpster locations to all communities within Washington County throughout the year at no cost to residents. Now that the second location is available and both locations within 10-15 minutes of our city, La Verkin will no longer offer Dumpster Days. This has been an annual cost of approximately $7,000 to the city for the extra dumpsters and man-hours.

UPDATE to Secondary Water 3-18-19

Water in the system is being brought in today, Monday 3-18 and should be fully operational on Wednesday, 3-20. .

UPDATE to Secondary Water Schedule 3-14-19

***Due to the recent storms and the increase in the turbidity of the river water, it is beyond our system's ability to bring the secondary water in at this point. To do so would result in extreme equipment damage and replacement. We will monitor it throughout the  weekend and at the point it gets within range, we will bring it on-line.

Secondary Water Schedule

System testing of secondary water lines for leaks and problems will start March 4th, be sure to turn your valves off if you opened them for the winter. Full service is scheduled to be back on-line March 15, 2019. .

Dumpster Days & State Street Cleanup Oct 26 & 27, 2018

Culinary Water Rate Increase

During and subsequent to completion of the Master Plan, the City has experienced rising costs of operation and maintenance of its water system, especially due to breaks in water lines which have quickly and repeatedly absorbed annual system repair budgets. Other incidental system costs are also rising and projected to rise, including additional operational efforts due to rising populations, legislative mandates, and development of water sources. These factors have caused the City Council and staff to look closely at the need for a rate increase to: 1) partially correct suppressed water rates resulting from approximately 18 years without a rate increase, 2) address growing operational and maintenance costs, and 3) more aggressively fund renewal and replacement projects on the aging system.

Secondary Water Shutoff Nov. 15, 2018
