Culinary Water System:

Payson City strives to ensure that the water it delivers to its residents is safe.  Each month we are required to take several water samples from various sites through out the city.  These samples are then sent to the state lab to test for harmful contaminates.  Payson City currently meets the state requirements for water quality.  Every year we send out a Consumer Confidence Report that has valuable information regarding our water system.
The city currently has three concrete below ground, water storage tanks with 5.6 million gallon total capacity of water storage.  The culinary distribution facilities include 115 miles of 4” to 12” lines, 10 miles 12” transmission lines and 46 miles of service laterals.  Sources consist of 4 wells and 8 springs.

Pressurized Irrigation System

Pressurized Irrigation Schedule 2018

Payson City utilizes three sources for our pressurized irrigation system.  The city owns the water rights in the Payson Lakes. The lakes are limited in the amount of water it delivers. With the drought years, the lakes are not full to start the irrigation season. Payson City also owns rights in Spring Lake. The city pumps the lake into the pressurized irrigation system, which helps with the upper pressurized zone. The last source of water is from the Strawberry Valley Project. Payson City has approximately 2,500 acre feet of strawberry water that is delivered to our pressurized irrigation ponds via the High Line Canal. It takes all three of these sources to meet the watering demands of the city. When the High Line Canal breached, the city was not able to receive its Strawberry Water allotment. The city increased the amount of water released from the Payson Lakes and continued to pump from Spring Lake.  However, without the Strawberry water, the ponds cannot sustain themselves for very long.

Water and Sewer Study of Impact Fees

Payson City has worked with Horrocks Engineers to perform a study to update the impact fees for the Culinary water, secondary water and sewer utility impact fees.  A copy of this study is available in the link below.  Due to the size of the document if has been broken into four (4) parts.
