Water/Secondary Water System




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 Standard Drawing

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.

Pressurized Irrigation Filters

Payson City highly recommends that the residents and businesses install an individual filter on their sprinkler system.  The pressurized irrigation water is not treated and it can be dirty at times.  The City is not responsible or liable for any damage to your sprinkler system, grass, or plants so it is recommended that you install and maintain a filter to keep your lines and sprinklers working as optimally as possible.
