The Engineering Division of Ogden City Corp works mainly "behind the scenes" as a support group, monitoring and maintaining the infrastructure of the city. Working closely with the City's Water, Sewer, Storm Drain, and Street Divisions, Ogden City engineers determine the utility needs for an ever-evolving town.
As part of an ongoing effort to improve the quality of utility services available to residents, it occasionally becomes necessary to construct water tanks and pipelines along Ogden’s hillsides or to tear up roads to replace aging and inadequate utility pipes. These temporary inconveniences help ensure a better equality of life for residents in the future.
City Roads & State Roads
There are actually three categories of roads within Ogden: private roads, city roads, and state routes. Ogden City is responsible for city roads; and in fact, for liability, safety, and privacy concerns, Ogden City is not allowed to plow, construct, or perform maintenance on any streets other than designated City owned streets.

Ogden City maintains record drawings of utility line locations, layouts, and sizes. Occassionally, homeowners and contractors will request utility plats and drawings in connection with new developments or when a water or sewer line breaks and requires service.
If you plan to dig on your private property, you must first call Blue Stakes of Utah at least 48 hours before you dig.
Addressing for all new subdivisions and developments within Ogden City are either assigned or verified under the supervision of the City Engineer. Occassionally a property owner will discover that the address of his or her property title does not match county records, utility records, or sometimes even the house number itself! The property owner is encouraged to make an inquiry if he or she feels that this may be the case.
