Park City Water Department is committed to providing the highest quality drinking water and the best service to our customers. We take pride in protecting public health through our continual efforts to provide safe and reliable water to your homes and businesses. The Water Department performs hundreds of different tests on a regular basis to ensure the water you are drinking meets or is better than the standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Utah Department of Environmental Quality Division of Drinking water (DDW). Water Department staff works closely with DDW to make certain all drinking water standards are met every time you open a tap at your home or business.

Water Department Goals

The goal of the Water Department is to ensure adequate water supply through continued system maintenance and improvement to support public health and safety and recreational lifestyles enjoyed by residents, second homeowners and visitors from around the globe.

Park City recognizes the level of trust in providing water in the necessary quantity and quality that is essential to health, public safety, recreation opportunities including world class skiing and golfing, and stream water while protecting the overall environment in which we all live. The Water Department is committed to providing the highest quality of service to meet the community’s needs.

The Park City Water Department operates and maintains one of the most complicated water systems in the west which includes advanced water treatment and delivery for potable, irrigation, and snowmaking purposes. Surface water management is a critical aspect of this to protect stream water quality. Park City also faces unique challenges resulting from historic mining activities and seeks to improve the environment by mitigating those impacts. 

Consumer Confidence Report

The Park City Water Department, as required by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Utah State Division of Drinking Water (DDW), annually publishes a Consumer Confidence Report (CCR). The CCR provides information about the sources of water and the treatment facilities that are operated by Water Department staff in addition to other EPA required information. The CCR reports the highest and lowest levels of each parameter that is detected from the sources that supply water to the distribution system. Many other parameters are tested for and if they are not detected EPA recommends against including these parameters in the CCR. The CCR also includes results for some parameters that are collected in the distribution system, such as total coliforms, chlorine residuals, disinfectant by-products, and others from within buildings, such as lead and copper.

Distribution System Water Quality Monitoring Results

As part of Park City Water Department's commitment to water quality, testing has been significantly expanded beyond that required by EPA and DDW. Samples are collected within the distribution system at locations that represent water being delivered to homes and businesses throughout the system. Twenty-one water parameters are tested on a quarterly basis in eight (8) different areas of the city as shown on the map and current water sampling results.
