The Herriman City Water Department has completed a water rate study, which was performed by Zions Bank Public Finance. These studies are generally conducted every 1-2 years to ensure our water revenues are staying in line with our debt service obligations and O&M costs. The last water rate study was performed in the summer of 2012. Here is a link to the rate findings presentation for Culinary and Secondary water rates. A map has been provided to point out the areas of the City which currently have secondary water available and areas which could potentially have access in the future.
Don’t Get Caught with Exposed Pipes
Winter is approaching and so is the cold weather. Frozen or burst water pipes can create an unpleasant emergency and waste a lot of water. Take a few precautions to prevent frozen pipes:
- Locate your master shutoff valve and make sure it’s working properly
- Disconnect outdoor hoses
- Insulate pipes or faucets in unheated areas such as a garage or cold crawl space under the house. Wrap the water pipes before temperatures plummet
- Seal off access doors, air vents and cracks. Winter winds whistling through openings can quickly freeze exposed water pipes
Even if you have taken precautions, once in a while pipes still freeze. It is recommended that you call a plumber if you are not experienced with home repair work. There is significant risk of injury or property damage from inexperienced efforts to thaw pipes.
