Irrigation Recommendation

As of June 1st, the current irrigation recommendation from the Division of Water Resources for Summit County is ZERO irrigations per week. Waiting to water allows grass roots to grow deeper and build endurance. Wait until temps are in the mid-70s for several consecutive days before turning on your sprinklers.

Annual Backflow Testing

Federal and state laws require public water systems to protect their systems from cross connections and backflow. Summit Water Distribution Company’s Cross Connection program requires all customers with a backflow device to have an annual inspection/testing of all backflow assemblies on your property.¬†For more information, click here.

Fire Hydrant Ordinance

Please remember each property owner that is adjacent to, or across the street from a fire hydrant is responsible for making sure that the snow is cleared from the hydrant sufficient to provide ready access to emergency personnel. The Summit County Ordinance requires that snow be removed from an area of three (3) feet surrounding the base of the hydrant. Please visit our website for additional information.
