    • Construction to occur June-July with a short construction window.

    Park Meadows – Creekside

    • Anticipated start Spring/Summer 2017 – December 2017

    • The new filtration building will add filtration to the Park Meadows well as required by the Utah division of drinking water.  

    • The well is under direct influence of surface water. The added filters will round out the existing process consisting of ultraviolet (UV) light and chlorine for disinfection.

    • New building will have a covered patio as an amenity to the nearby park.  

    • The existing well buildings will be demolished and the area will be landscaped.

    Quinn’s Junction Water Treatment Facility

    • Under construction currently – anticipated completion July 2017

    • Add additional filtration to remove total organic carbon (TOC) and manganese from the source water (Weber river). During spring run off or heavy rain events, high concentrations of TOC and manganese are found in the water and have in the past either reduced the production capacity or shut the plant down.  These new filters will allow full production during these events.

    • Add a back wash tank to better clean the existing filters and the new filters.


    • Optimize operations by better using tank storage to pump during off peak times, modifying and replacing pumps with more efficient and variable speed pumps.  

    • Install a new pipeline that will dramatically increase the efficiency of the connection to Jordanelle Special Service District's system and reduce the pumping required in our system.  

    • The new connection will bring water in at the top of our system rather than at the existing location near St Regis Hotel.  

    New meters

    • Continue to replace large customer meters that are old and inaccurate.  More accurate metering provides feedback and awareness to customers on actual water use so they are more likely to reduce their use.
