Water is treated and checked monthly to ensure safety for residents. In addition, independent annual tests are also conducted and reported on through our Water Quality Report. In addition to these reports, American Fork City recently conducted additional water and soil tests in light of the recent Tibble Fork sediment release.
Water has been a valued commodity as long as man has inhabited the earth. Protecting this resource is top priority for American Fork City and those who work in the Public Works Water Division. Our staff work continually, night or day, to ensure the highest quality water is provided to every tap. We realize that the quality of life that you enjoy is largely due to dependable, clean drinking water.
American Fork City operates (5) deep source wells that have the ability to pump an average of 13,300 gallons of water per minute. This water, along with water collected from a spring in American Fork Canyon, is piped into tanks near the mouth of American Fork Canyon and Cedar Hills. Once collected the water is gravity fed into the vast distribution system and delivered to your home or business.
