Dump Passes: Every residence in Orem receives two free dump passes per year. These are delivered in the spring and fall newsletters.  They are on the front page. These go to every residence even if they do not have a utility bill or if they are on paperless billing.  We do not have extras to give out at the city center.

Water Rates

State law requires all water providers to establish an increasing rate structure for culinary water. The current rates per 1,000 gallons are:

Tier 1 – $0.98
Tier 2 – $1.22
Tier 3 – $1.45
Tier 4 – $1.94

In the 2016 General Session, the Utah State Legislature passed the “Water System Conservation Pricing” bill which requires all retail water providers, including the City of Orem, to establish an increasing rate structure for culinary water. To comply with this new law, the Orem City Council adopted the following tiered rate structure:

Flow Allotment by Meter Size (per 1,000 gallons per month)

Meter Size (inches)Tier 1Tier 2Tier 3Tier 4

Questions about your bill can be addressed by calling 801-229-7275.

We built our home a year ago. We want to finish our basement using the plans provided by our builder. If it is just building the interior walls, could we qualify for a permit to do the work ourselves following their plans?

As an owner of the structure, you can do any work on your own home if you live at the home. If you have anyone else work on it, they must be a licensed contractor.  A permit needs to be obtained.  Having those original plans should help you in submitting for the permit but the plans would need to be updated to show how you are proposing to finish it.
