History of Kaysville, Utah
Taken from the Utah History Encyclopedia. (Links Added)

An adequate water supply has always been a priority for local government leaders. The main breakthrough in securing a water supply came in 1881 when the Davis and Weber County Canal Company was organized. In the 1960s Kaysville secured additional water from the Weber Basin project. The secondary water system expanded in 1992 with the completion of a Davis and Weber County Canal Company reservoir. Kaysville City is entirely serviced with secondary water.

The 14,000 current residents of Kaysville are generally well-educated, and a large percentage of them work in professional jobs. The city-owned business park is beginning to attract light manufacturing industries, thereby expanding the economic base. Kaysville is the only city in Davis County to operate an independent library system, and is one of only a few cities in Utah to own a municipal power system.
