We are an East Mill Creek community nonprofit irrigation water company, managed and operated mostly by volunteers and entirely by your neighbors. Our mission is to provide safe, affordable and sustainable irrigation water. We keep costs down through volunteering. It’s been working that way since 1848.
Want to save money on your water bill? If you live in East Mill Creek and have an active ditch, you might be eligible to join. Many of our users pay less than $100 per year for 6 months of irrigation water! Each water share is about 20 minutes of water. See the system map to learn if you are on an active ditch.
Mark you calendar
- Water begins after April 1, 2018 – everyone needs to clean their lateral–once the entire lateral has been cleaned, contact your lateral captain or Water Master and tell them it is now safe to let down the water.
- Brigham Young Users: the main ditch should be cleaned by this weekend. Schedules will be sent soon. We also need to coordinate with the White Ditch to make sure their ditches are clean and ready for our water.
- Amos Neff Users: the main ditch should be cleaned in the next week….more details to come.
- Franklin John Neff: the main ditch by the creek is filled with mud. Rick says that if it dries out and they can get it cleaned out, the water may be able to run as early as April 7. If it’s rainy and too wet, they cannot finish cleaning the main ditch. Will update water start date within the week.
- If neighbors need a little info about our irrigation ditches, give them a copy of our “Good Neighbor Flier”.
- Adjudication letters from the State of Utah have been sent to most of our shareholders. If all you have is East Mill Creek Water Company Irrigation shares and Salt Lake City Culinary water, you do not need to file a Water Rights Claim form because Salt Lake City and East Mill Creek Water Company will complete the required documentation for all our shareholders. If you have a well, house-deeded water, or some other form of water right, then you probably need to complete the forms. Contact a state adjudicator for more information. We have sent more information about this with assessments.For ways to help, go to VOLUNTEER.
- Assessments were to be paid by Jan 27th. You can now pay by check, by Direct Recurring Payment from your bank account (this one saves you and the Company the most time and money), or by Credit Card. To sign up for Direct Payment, print and complete this Authorization Form. More information or to make an online payment go to PAYMENTS.
