Secondary WaterSecondary Water
Riverton City boasts an exeptional secondary water system that serves all residents. The secondary water system uses lower-grade, non-potable water sources to meet outdoor water needs, which means tremendous savings for residents when compared to other cities where culinary water is the only option for outdoor watering. Secondary water is available to residents from May 1 to October 15 of each year.
