2023 Shareholder Rules
- No Water Usage on the same location Two Days Consecutively. Over watering plants develops weak and shallow root systems that are stressed during Utah’s hot and dry summers.
- Water from the Centerville Deuel Creek Irrigation Company is for the irrigation of lawns, landscape plants and crops only. All water features must be recirculating and those exceeding 300 gallons must be inspected and approved by the company.
- Overwatering or watering of streets and sidewalks that causes excessive runoff and waste of water is not allowed.
- No water usage between 10:00 am and 6:00 pm. Those shareholders identified by the company as being in the low‐pressure zone may not use water between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm and may use booster pumps after 6:00pm.
- Each service location is required to have a shareholder shut off valve within ten feet of the company shut off valve. The company shut off valve is typically located near the park strip in a metal valve box or meter pit. The shareholder is not allowed to operate the company shut off valve or access the meter pit. Shareholders that do not have a shareholder shutoff valve will be required to install a shareholder shutoff valve before service can resume. The requirement of a shareholder shutoff valve has existed since the construction of the pressurized system in 1959.
- No water application to any property that is not part of your coverage. Park strips between your covered property and the street are acceptable if done within the Water Use Rules.
Any Shareholder or Shareholders Agent found violating these rules will be asked to immediately stop using water in violation of the rules and will receive a Warning upon the first violation. If the Shareholder or Shareholders Agent refuses or is unavailable to stop using water in violation of the rules, the shareholders valve will be closed or the company valve will be closed to stop the continued violation of the rules. Service may be resumed by the shareholder opening the shareholder valve or by contacting the company for the company valve to be opened. Upon a second violation the service for the offending location will be shutoff and a $50.00 Shutoff Fee will be assessed to the Shareholders account. For service to be resumed the Shareholder must provide the company with a written Remediation Plan acceptable to the company and pay the Shutoff fee. A Remediation Plan must outline how the Shareholder will correct the situation violating the company rules and a signed statement that the Shareholder will comply with the Remediation Plan or face termination of service for the remainder of the irrigation season. A Director of the company will approve or reject the Remediation Plan within two business days of receipt. Any Shareholder or Shareholders Agent found to be operating a company valve when service has been shutoff for a violation of the rules will have their service terminated for the remainder of the irrigation season.
Please inspect and correct any leaky valves, broken pipes and sprinklers. Shareholders with automatic systems should inspect their timers for proper operational times. If runoff is excessive, please use multiple short cycles separated by time for absorption. Sprinklers should not spray into streets or driveways. Park strip sprinklers should spray into the yard from the curb side.
