Water Conservation

  • Watering lawns between 8 p.m. and 10 a.m. can reduce evaporation loss by 15 to 20 percent.
  • Avoid watering lawns during the heat of the day, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Check your irrigation system on a regular basis to ensure proper performance and sprinkler head coverage; make necessary adjustments and repairs.
  • In the fall before the first freeze, be sure to drain and clear the system of water to avoid leaks and breaks.
  • For more information contact Weber Basin Conservancy District.

Backflow Prevention

A backflow prevention assembly is used to protect potable water supplies from contamination or pollution due to backflow. In our water supply system, water is normally maintained at a significant pressure to enable water to flow from the tap, shower, or other fixture. However, water pressure may fail or be reduced when a water main bursts, pipes freeze, or there is an unexpected high demand on the water system (for example, when several fire hydrants are opened at once).



Backflow Form


Pressure may reduce in the main waterline which could allow contaminated water from the soil, from storage, or from other sources within your business or residence to be drawn up into the system, contaminating drinking water. This is called backflow. 

To ensure that our water system is protected against contamination by water users, we require that all connections to a potential source of contamination, including residential lawn sprinklers, are protected with an approved backflow prevention assembly. 

Backflow prevention assemblies must be tested by a certified tester upon install, after a significant repair, or at least once a year.

Once a test has been performed please send a copy to: backflowreports@clearfieldcity.org 

Call 801-525-4419 with questions or concerns.

Water Quality Report

Clearfield City is committed to providing an adequate supply of clean, safe drinking water to our residents and businesses. We purchase the majority of our water from Weber Basin Conservancy District and supplement in the high water use times with City-owned wells. We have 10.5 million gallons of storage capacity in our storage tanks. Our water operators take 15 samples twice each month test for the presence of bacteria. We take daily samples to test the chlorine residual and when our wells are running, we daily test the level of fluoride being added to the water. If ever the quality of Clearfield City water is compromised, the residents and businesses will be notified immediately, as required by law.

 The pressure in the water system is primarily gravity fed. However, there are several pressure-regulating valves throughout the system to ensure that the pressure stays within the target range for the individual pressure zones. We also have one booster pump station that is used as-needed to sustain pressure in the Freeport Center and in the areas south of Antelope Drive.
