Secondary Irrigation System Metering

Many residential connections use secondary water for outside irrigation. When connections aren’t metered, it is difficult to track and conserve secondary water.

Passed in 2022, Utah Code 73-10-34 (HB242) requires that secondary water suppliers that have a pressurized secondary system install meters on all end user connections, with some exceptions. Meters must be installed by January 1, 2030.

In addition, Utah Code 73-10-34 appropriated $250 million in ARPA grants for the purchase and installation of secondary water meters. The Board of Water Resources was tasked with distributing these funds.

The final application period closed on February 21, 2023. All $250 million are expected to be committed in upcoming board meetings. At this time, there are no secondary metering grant funds available. However, the Board of Water Resources can provide loan funding to install meters that would be repaid at 1% interest over 15 years.

The requirements regarding secondary meter installation are only applicable to secondary water suppliers, NOT residential consumers.
