Eagle Mtn: Tiered Water Rate

"Beginning July 1, Eagle Mountain residents and businesses will once again be charged for their water based on a tiered rate system with the $20 base rate remaining the same.

The rate for water usage will change depending on lot size.

Those who have a lot smaller than a half acre, the rate will start at 80 cents for usage up to 65,000 gallons. Those who have a half acre or greater can request the second set of rates, where the usage rate will start at 80 cents for up to 120,000 gallons.

Residents must request to be placed in the large lot section and fill out an exception form. Forms are available on the city website or at Eagle Mountain City Hall, utility department offices. Lot size is verified before placement into the large lot section.

Another change starting July 1 is residents may now water any day of the week, but not during the hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. These changes are in effect to prepare for a water rate study that the city is doing for conservation purposes." -Daily Herald

I just moved to Eagle Mountain. I was wondering what water would run as I'm putting in a new lawn. This article helped. I was wondering if you could do an article on neighborhood myths and stories.
