About Us

Mountain Regional Water Special Service District

The District was created in 2000 by the Summit County Commission (now Council) to regionalize water service in the Snyderville Basin by consolidating several failing water companies. The District now employs over 30 people and covers almost 40 square miles which includes;

  • 130 miles of water lines
  • 19 groundwater wells
  • one surface water diversion
  • 140 pumps with 39 water pressure zones ranging from 6,000 feet to 9,300 feet.

The District currently serves over 5,000 customers and in addition to those customers, the District provides irrigation water for three golf courses and wholesale water to other water companies. In 2021, the District produced over 6,000 acre-feet of water.
