Spanish Fork City’s Pressurized Irrigation system has approximately 155 miles of distribution main. These pipes range in size from 4 inches to 36 inches in diameter. The Pressurized Irrigation system is a seasonal utility that is typically filled in the Spring around mid-April and drained in the fall around mid-October. Spanish Fork City provides Pressurized Irrigation service at approximately 45psi in sizes of  ¾ inch for residential use and  2, 4, and 6 inch diameter laterals for commercial use, running from the Pressurized Irrigation main to the property’s meter. Since psi can vary throughout the city, the best way to find the pressure at your property when setting up a sprinkler system is with a pressure gauge on the system you are connecting to.

RETAIL WATER LINE DISCLOSURE: The retail pressurized irrigation water line is the pipe that extends between the stop-and-waste valve located in the park strip area and the sprinkling system or the hose connection. Spanish Fork City is responsible for the water line on the street side up to and including the pressurized irrigation meter. The property owner is responsible for the water line from the first fitting just after the meter and into the sprinkling system or the hose connection.
