Why Metered Water?

In 2022, Utah legislators passed House Bill 242 to have metered non-potable water throughout the state of Utah by the year 2030…

About the project

NOTE: This website covers only the water providers in the cities below. If you are in a different city, please contact your water provider directly.

Legislation passed by the Utah State Legislature in 2022 requires secondary water connections in Utah to have a meter by 2030.

Water systems throughout the state, as a result, will be installing meters until more than 200,000 connections are completed. Meter installation, combined with public education about responsible water use, has proven to be one of the state's most effective water conservation tools. Check out What's Happening In My Neighborhood below to get information on installations in your area.

Water savings through metering alone could range between 25 and 40 percent-essentially, "a full reservoir of water".

- Rep. Val Peterson (R-Orem)

The money from the federal government’s American Rescue Plan Act will help water districts cover up to 70% of the cost for installing meters if they do so in 2022 or 2023.

The Metering Process


A contractor will dig down to your secondary water connection.


A meter will be connected, helping you and your community water system better understand your use.


A meter box will be installed to protect, and give access to, the meter.


Landscaping around the excavated area will be restored.

What's Happening in My Neighborhood?


Secondary meter installations will pause from late March till June 2024. A map will be uploaded here once installations resume.


Secondary meters installation is complete in Hooper. Thank you!


The system is charging and will be completely charged by April 15. Call the hotline (801-810-5886) from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. Evenings and weekends call 801-390-3513.

Secondary meters installations in West Kaysville are 99 percent complete. East Kaysville should be completed by the end of April. These installations are only in the Davis & Weber Counties Canals service area. We thank you for your patience through this process.

Please see DWCCC's website for info about start up (under "2024 Water Season"). As our system charges up this spring, watch for any leaks and call the hotline (801-810-5886) so the contractor can make any needed repairs.

Watch for door hangers notifying when contractors will be in your area. For an update on shutdowns, visit Davis Weber's website and click on "click to view map" at the bottom of the right sidebar.


Installation of secondary meters in Layton has resumed and will continue through the winter. You will receive a door hanger when installers are in your area. Please call with any concerns or questions.


Secondary meters are currently being installed west of 2700 West between 4800 South and 6000 South.

Benefits Of Metered Water

Water efficiency: We can be more efficient with our water resources if we know how much we’re using. That’s where meters come in! Studies associated with secondary metering projects have found that metering can help property owners reduce water use up to 30% or more, just through education and by adjusting their outside watering. In addition, meters help detect leaks and other water supply problems.

Detect water waste: Previous metering efforts have revealed leaks that may have been going on for years, and users also had no idea how much water they were using, often leading to waste. Metering brings awareness to users and opens the door for education about using water more efficiently, which could result in water savings of more than 30 percent.

Regular supply: The water conserved this year may be next year's supply. With Utah's reservoirs lower than we’ve seen in a long time, we need to use less on our landscapes to ensure enough water for the coming summers. When we use less, that water can be used for our homes, businesses, and the environment.
