Clearfield City has a backflow program to protect you from drinking dirty or hazardous water. We put backflow assemblies on all meters and encourage residents to do the same to their home irrigation systems. This helps keep water clean for everybody in the city.
Water pressure can drop when a water main bursts, a pipe freezes, or there is unexpectedly high demand on the water system. Reduced pressure in the main line may allow contaminated water from the soil, storage, or from other sources within your residence or business to be drawn up into the system. This is how a backflow assembly helps. It ensures we don’t consume any hazardous particles by preventing backwards flow.
Residents and businesses can take action by installing backflow assemblies to their water systems. Contact Clearfield City Public Works at 801-525-4419 for more information on how to get started.
