Public Utilities

Salt Lake City Department of Public Utilities is committed to serving our customers and protecting our environment by delivering high-quality drinking water, managing flood control and storm water, collecting and treating wastewater to standards that exceed EPA regulations, and maintaining and enhancing public street lighting. We actively protect our source waters and promote its efficient use. Established in 1876, the Utility is the oldest retail water provider in the West. 

**Advisory** Elevated levels of harmful bacteria cause by the Utah Lake algae bloom have been found in the Jordan River and Salt Lake County canal system. Residents and their pets are strongly advised to avoid using water, or coming into contact with water from the Jordan River or canals. Salt Lake City's drinking water comes from a different source and is NOT impacted by this issue.
