County of Salt Lake City
City meters are read and billed monthly. Bills include charges for water service, garbage pickup, sewer service, a storm water charge, and a franchise fee of 6% of the water and sewer charges.
Customers living outside city boundaries are billed for water service only.
Bills are due 15 days after the mailing date.
If service is terminated because of a past due bill or rules violations, before service is restored, a reconnection fee will assessed and collected in addition to the delinquent amount.
Storm Water Utility
The goal of the storm water utility is to provide for the collection and management of storm water runoff. This minimizes property damage and protects and improves the surface water quality. Salt Lake City operates and maintains 226 miles of storm water lines and open ditches.
Part of the storm water program involves cleaning up the environment. Customers can help by making sure lawn fertilizer and pesticides are properly applied by avoiding run off into the curb and street. Motor oil should be delivered to one of Salt Lake’s recyclers instead of dumping it down drains or placing it in a garbage container.
Residential service charges are as follows:
Single-family residential and duplex parcels, less than or equal to .25 acres - $4.24 per month
Single-family or duplex parcels greater than .25 acres - $5.94 per month
All triplex and fourplex residential parcels are charged $8.48 per month.
These fees are based upon a lot’s "impervious surface, " which means the hard surface area of a parcel which either prevents or retards the the entry of water into the soil and/or causes water to run off the surface in greater quantities or at an increased rate of flow from that which would be present under natural conditions. Impervious surfaces may include, but are not limited to: rooftops; concrete or asphalt paving; walkways; patios; driveways; parking lots or storage areas; trafficked gravel; or other surfaces which similarly impede the natural infiltration into the ground or runoff of storm and surface water.
Most cities charge franchise fees to utilities operating within their jurisdiction. Salt Lake City charges a 6% franchise fee on water, sewer and storm water charges billed to city residents. This fee reimburses the city for use of its streets for pipe lines which supply customers with water, sewer storm water service. The money from this fee goes into the city’s general fund to provide funding for parks and streets as well as fire and police protection.
Salt Lake City furnishes each residential housing unit a wheeled garbage container. The container should be placed curbside on collection by 7:00 a.m.
A garbage fee (currently $12.50 per container) is included on the water utility bill. For more information regarding pickup times, additional garbage container, recycling, etc.,
