Pressurized Irrigation Water

Water from the pressurized irrigation reservoirs which feed the pressurized irrigation or secondary water system is a blend of surface water from a variety of sources. It is screened but not treated in any way and as such is not suitable as drinking water.  Residents should take the same precautions with this water as they would with any irrigation water that may contain bacteria regularly found in rivers and streams. Do not allow children to play in the water. In most cases the hose bib attached to a resident’s home is connected to the culinary system of the home. It is recommended that “kiddie pools” be filled utilizing culinary water.


Pressurized irrigation water will be filtered to 300 microns and homeowners are encouraged to check their individual irrigation systems and filter the water as recommended by their individual system. A 500 micron filter is recommended for the protection of sprinkler heads.

Now What About Those Irrigation Ditches? 
With the installation of the pressurized irrigation system, the use of ditches for flood irrigation has been greatly reduced. Some resident have expressed a desire to fill in the ditches that transverse their property.  Although these ditches may not be used regularly to convey flood irrigation turns they are still vital to American Fork City's storm drain system.  Therefore these ditches may not be filled it without prior approval of the City Engineer.  If you are interested in learning if your ditch is one of those that is still being utilized, complete the form that applies to you below and drop it by the Public Works office for the City Engineer to review.  He will review your information and determine whether this ditch can be designated as abandoned and filled in. You may also contact our office for more information.
