Water Sources The Water Sources Section of Water Resources is responsible for the operation and maintenance of the City's sources of culinary water supply and for the delivery of that water to the City's nine distribution reservoirs or tanks located generally along the east foothills of the community.

The Water Sources Section operates and maintains spring areas (in Provo and Rock Canyons), water transmission lines, chlorinator stations, deep wells, booster pumps, pressure reducing stations, and storage reservoirs. This division is also responsible for water quality and routinely collects water samples which are analyzed for some 114 chemical and microbial contaminants.

To provide more information to our customers, we invite you to visit our pages concerning Cross Connection, Water Source Protection,  Annual Water Quality Report for 2013 and our latest Annual Water Quality Report for 2015.



 
Water Distribution The Water Distribution Section of Water Resources is responsible for those facilities which distribute drinking water from the City's distribution reservoirs or tanks to the homes and businesses within the community.

This work includes the installation and maintenance of water distribution mains, valves, fire hydrants, water service lines, and meters. This work is almost always associated with excavation in street or immediately adjacent to streets and includes the repair of water main and service line breaks which may occur in the street or in yards, the replacement of meter box lids which may be missing or broken, frozen water pipes, fire hydrants leaking or damaged, and any problems associated with waterline construction or maintenance.


 
open-manhole Wastewater Collections The Wastewater Collections Section of Water Resources is responsible for the the operation and maintenance of the City's sewer collection system. The collection system consists of all the main line sewers that are generally found in every street in the City and serve to collect wastewater from homes and businesses and deliver that wastewater through the collection system to the City's Water Reclamation Facility.

Properties are connected to the wastewater collections system through a pipe known as a sewer lateral. Property owners are responsible for the installation and maintenance of their sewer lateral from their home to the connection into the sewer main line in the street. For information on what you can do to help prevent sewer backups, please see our page on No Grease.


 
 
brown-water Water Reclamation The plant, which is located on 43 acres in the East Bay commercial area of south Provo, is meeting the challenges of City-wide growth, as well as striving to be a good neighbor to the businesses located around the plant.

The Provo plant is designed to treat an average daily inflow of 21 million gallons from domestic, commercial, and industrial sources. Presently, 15 million gallons of wastewater are treated each day, reducing the impurities to a level which meets the present state and EPA requirements.
