Clearfield City is keeping water rates consistent with the conservation rates adopted by city council in 2022. Conservation rates are necessary due to the increasing cost of maintaining our distribution system (including repairing/replacing water lines before failures occur), the rising cost of water due to its limited availability as a finite resource, and Utah’s continued conservation efforts to fill water storages, reservoirs, and lakes. Rates are currently in effect. For questions about your bill, please call our customer service center at 801-525-2700.
What are the water rates for residents?
Resident water rates are defined by a tiered system based on usage. Residents that use between 0-10,000 gallons of water per billing cycle will not see a rate increase more than the normal annual $.02 increase. The rates will be most impactful to residents that use 40,001 to 80,000+ gallons of water per billing cycle.
What are the water rates for multi-unit properties?
Multi-unit properties that use more than the 7,000 gallons per unit included in their base fee will be charged based on the additional usage.
What are the water rates for commercial properties?
Commercial properties have a rate based on water usage per thousand gallons.
When will the rates go into effect?

How can I conserve water?
What is the city doing to conserve water?
The Parks & Recreation Department has developed a comprehensive plan to preserve the sports fields while conserving water. Watering is occurring to preserve the sports fields and community spaces. Conservation efforts include watering at a 20% reduced rate, changing grass heights to preserve the turf, turning off water to park strips, utilizing wetting agents and slow-release fertilizer, and more. The Parks Department installed new water monitoring systems in 2021 and reduced its water usage by over 30%.
