Utah groundwater contaminants create problem water for rural Utah property owners.


Problem Water in Utah

Country-living is wonderful: open spaces, wildlife, beautiful landscapes, and freedom from the hustle and bustle of city life. With that freedom comes a lot of responsibility. Since there is no municipal water supply available, you are your own water utility and are in charge of water supply and quality.

Most rural water users in Utah will either draw water from a surface supply, sub-surface supply, or an “alternative” technique like snow/rainwater harvest. Contrary to what a lot of people think, water in the Utah back-country or from your own well usually isn’t any cleaner, fresher, or better than city water.
