Water in the system is being brought in today, Monday 3-18 and should be fully operational on Wednesday, 3-20. .
***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.
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. .
There are a couple of changes for Dumpster Days, please make note. Due to fire safety concerns, the city is no longer offering a burn pile for yard debris. However, there will be an additional dumpster dedicated to "green" waste.
Dumpster Days and State Street Cleanup State Street Cleanup - local church and civic groups will be cleaning trash along State Street (Hwy9) from the bridge north to 500 North. We encourage all residents to get involved. Call the city at (435) 635-2581.
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 (Irrigation Water) is available from La Verkin City. Please call (435) 635-2581 for more information. Secondary water goes out of the system Nov.
