Grantsville Irrigation

Because the reservoir is dropping more than anticipated, the system will be shut off the morning of Monday, Sept. 26, 2022. It takes a couple days to drain so some areas may have water longer than others. We suggest waiting at least 1-2 weeks before winterizing your lines to be sure they are empty.
Please read your meter to ensure the allotment of 150,000 gallons per residential share has not been exceeded. Those using more water than they’re allowed will be shut off and will need to lease another share or pay the penalty fees. If we shut off your water, there is a $100 fee.
