The land developer and municipality who created the building lot allow easements to be created on private property for the laying and maintenance of public utilities. These are called Public Utility Easements (PUE) and are shown (usually as dotted lines) on subdivision plats that are available at the Davis County Recorder’s Office in Farmington. The utilities that commonly have access to these easements are:
- Rocky Mountain Power (Pacificorp).
- Dominion Energy
- Syracuse City
- And now, Utopia through an agreement signed by the Syracuse City Council.
Sometimes specific easements are created for entities such as the North Davis Sewer District but they are usually specifically labeled rather than listed as a Public Utility Easement which is simply shown as a PUE.
