Who We Are:
The Utility Department for American Fork City consists of (4) four divisions: Water, Sewer, Storm Water and Pressurized Irrigation. These divisions employ dedicated professionals who work hard to deliver the quality services that you enjoy as a resident. Although we often take these basic services for granted, American Fork City leaders and employees alike have worked very hard to ensure that we have adequate water resources for our growing community, a sewer system that is not just functional but environmentally responsible, storm water management practices that comply with state and federal guidelines and a secondary water source that is more accessible to the city population as a whole. We are proud of what we do and the positive impact that it has on this community.
Take moment and become familiar with each of our four divisions. We welcome your feedback.
Pressurized Irrigation Water
On March 28th we began filling the pressurized irrigation reservoirs and transmission lines in anticipation of the April 15th turn on date for the system. Please make certain that your pressurized irrigation system valve is off to prevent leaking due to possible broken pipes that the winter may have caused.
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.
