The culinary water system supplies water to all residents in Ivins except for those served by the private KWU water system which covers most of the Kayenta Area.

The culinary water system consists of the following:

  • 67 miles of piping
  • 1400 water valves
  • 4 storage tanks with a total storage capacity of 4.3 million gallons

Water Sources

Ivins City currently uses three main sources of water to supply the water system

  1. Gunlock Wells: located near the Gunlock Reservoir, these wells are owned and operated by the City of St George. Ivins City purchases this water from the City of St George.
  2. Snow Canyon Well Project: Ivins City is a joint owner of wells Snow Canyon with St. George and Santa Clara. The project facilities are operated by City of St. George through agreement.
  3. Quail Creek Reservoir Water Treatment Plant: A regional pipeline delivers water to Ivins City from the water treatment plant located near Quail Creek Reservoir and wells near Sand Hollow Reservoir. Ivins City purchases this water from the Washington County Water Conservancy District.

Ivins City has entered an agreement with the Washington County Water Conservancy District for all future water needs to be delivered from the District.
