Billing statements are prepared and mailed by utility billing each month. The monthly billing period is from the 21st to the 20th. Water users are billed for water used during the previous month. For example: water services provided during the period from 7/21 to 8/20 are due on or before 9/20. Payments not received by the 20th of the month are considered late and are assessed late charges at 5% per month or $.50 whichever is larger. New customers are billed for the entire month, regardless of your service start date. However, the adjustment will come at the time of the first meter reading for actual water usage.

Meter Readings
South Jordan City is currently in the process of changing out the meters to a new electronically read meter system which will change the three times a year meter readings, to monthly reads. The majority of the City is currently on a monthly read, however this is a lengthy and expensive process and we anticipate having this completed as soon as the funding is available. Please contact the water department if you have question on whether your route has been changed.
If a larger summer bill is anticipated, the customer may pay extra on his/her bill to build a credit balance toward the larger summer bills. Equal pay is not available at this time.
Delinquent Accounts
Water bills are considered delinquent if unpaid for 60 days. Water bills which are 60 days overdue, and have at least $40 outstanding, will result in water service being discontinued. To re-establish service, the customer must pay the outstanding account in full, including a $75 reconnection fee.
Returned Checks
A $20 service charge will be added to the water user's account if a check is returned by the bank to the city. If that check was used to pay a delinquent account, then the water service will be discontinued immediately and payment will be on a cash only basis.
Discontinuing Services
Any water user who is moving from the service address must notify the Water Department at least 48 hours prior to discontinuing service so that a final meter reading can be taken. Payment of the final bill will be due not later than the 20th of the following month.
South Jordan Municipal Court handles all collections. The water user will be liable for all court costs and any service fees.
Secondary Water
Some of the subdivisions have secondary water available to use. The charge for secondary water can be found on our fee schedule.

Storm Water Fees
Polluted storm water runoff is often transported to separate municipal storm sewer systems (MS4s) and ultimately discharged into local rivers and streams without treatment. EPA's Storm Water Phase II Rule establishes an MS4 storm water management program that is intended to improve the Nation's water ways by reducing the quantity of pollutants that storm water picks up and carries into storm sewer systems, during storm events. Common pollutants include oil and grease from roadways, pesticides from lawns, sediment from construction sites, and carelessly discarded trash, such as cigarette butts, paper wrappers, and plastic bottles. When deposited into nearby waterways through MS4 discharges, these pollutants can impair the waterways, thereby discouraging recreational use of the resource, contaminating drinking water supplies, and interfering with the habitat for fish, other aquatic organisms and wildlife.

In 1990, EPA promulgated rules establishing phase II the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination Systems (NPDES) storm water program. Phase II requires South Jordan City to implement a storm water management program as a means to control polluted discharges from these MS4s. The Storm Water Phase II Rule extends coverage of the NPDES storm water program to certain "small" MS4s, but takes a slightly different approach to how the storm water management program is developed and implemented.

Storm water fees can be found here. This funding is necessary in order to comply with the clean water act and the Storm Water Phase II final rule.
