ALERT: COLD TEMPERATURES
There may be several things that you may do to prepare your home for freezing temperatures. Here are a few of some simple things you may consider:

> Place insulation around pipes that are in the coldest areas of your home, such as pipes along exterior walls, pipes in a cold air return, pipes in a cold basement or crawl space.

> Disconnect garden hoses from the hose bib connected to your home. Cover or protect the hose bib.

> Keep some heat flowing in an unfinished basement to keep the ambient temperature above freezing.

> Open cabinet doors to allow heat to get to uninsulated pipes under sinks near exterior walls.

> Let water drip overnight from indoor faucets. Flowing water can slow the freezing process. When doing this, be sure that your drains are free flowing and won’t freeze. This is not recommended if you will not be at home for a day or more to keep an eye on things.

Consult a plumber who understands how to protect against freezing pipes.


WINTER PARKING:

Whenever snow falls in Syracuse, our Public Works Department has a big job to do.  With over 100 miles of road and over 250 cul-de-sacs to clear (requiring multiple plow passes for each one), we need your help to keep the plows moving as quickly as possible.

Parking vehicles off of the road makes a huge difference – and it’s the law.  Our plows slow down or stop for vehicles parked on the road, and some vehicles prevent us from accessing service areas.  This year, city staff has been directed to be more assertive in its enforcement of this law.  Vehicles or trailers found in violation of the code will be ticketed; repeat offenders may be towed.

We have not banned winter on-street parking entirely, so if the weather and roads are clear, feel free to have your guests use the street for parking.  But if snow is falling or we are still removing snow (which takes about 18 to 24 hours for the entire City), you will need to make other arrangements.  Overnight parking is discouraged, because snow may fall overnight, and we may be serving your street before you can move your car.

Help us help you!  Park off-street.

Notice:
Syracuse City provides irrigation water service to its residents. All homes in newer subdivisions have access to secondary water, as connection and impact fees have previously been paid on building permits. City ordinance 4-05-010 prohibits irrigating areas larger than one acre.

A City owned secondary water valve is usually placed in the park-strip in close proximity to the property line.  This valve is provided as a point of connection for the customer.  However, each resident must provide their own valve to operate their system by.  Additionally we recommend that users supply a filtering system in close proximity and downstream of their shut off valve. Tampering with any City owned utility is strictly prohibited.




Culinary Water


Please be aware: city ordinances require property owners to maintain access to their own water meter boxes, keeping them clear of weeds and debris. Maintaining these utilities will help crews shut down a broken sprinkler line or damaged plumbing inside the home. 


Most water softeners have a setting for grains per gallon. Weber Basin Water district provides water which has a 
hardness range of 6-18 with an average of 14 grains per gallon. Set your softener appropriately, but contact your 
local utility to verify if additional well water is mixed with your water which could alter the hardness. For additional 
remedies you may consult with local professionals that deal with hard water and install water softeners.

Annual Drinking Water Quality Report

Syracuse City does an excellent job of complying with an array of complex regulatory requirements, meeting the same standards as major metropolitan systems without the economies of scale afforded by larger utilities. The public can rest assured their water is safe. If a health issue arises, the public will be notified as required by law. Concerned citizens should contact Syracuse City Public Works first for any questions that may arise regarding water quality.


Blue Stakes 811 (Bluestakes.org)


Remember, before you start landscaping, it is a state law to contact Blue Stakes of Utah at least two (2) full business days (48 hours) prior to any digging, to locate and mark utility lines.  Requests can be made by dialing 811 or online at bluestakes.org, Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.   Blue Stakes is a free service provided by local utility companies.  Syracuse City is only responsible for marking City owned utility lines (Culinary and Secondary Water Mains, Sewer Mains, Land Drain Mains, Storm Drain Lines, and City owned Street Lighting). If you suspect that there are additional utilities on your property that have not been marked please contact the utility directly before excavation.
