Mount Olympus State Contract Canceled, effective July 31, 2016

The Purchasing Department has received notice from the State of Utah stating they have decided to cancel the current contract (MA294) in place with DS Services (Mt. Olympus Water) effective July 31, 2016.

University departments may choose any supplier for water service as long as their annual service costs less than the $5,000 small dollar threshold.

Please note: You may still receive your spring water from Mount Olympus.

We recommend the following when making arrangements for your water services:

  • We have been told your account number will remain unchanged.
    • If you wish to continue service with Mt. Olympus, send a “Yes” and your account number to UTSLCMOD@DSSERVICES.COM.
