Park City Council has identified Energy as a Critical Priority for the City. In response, Park City Water identified improvements to the JSSD to PCMC water delivery system as an opportunity to significantly increase Park City’s water system energy efficiency.  The Project, completed in 2019, consists of two primary components:

  • New Deer Crest Pump Station
  • New Deer Crest to Bald Eagle Transmission Pipeline

Project Description

The new Deer Crest Pump Station is a buried cast-in-place concrete structure that is equipped with pumps sized to deliver flowrates ranging from 500 gpm to 1,000 gpm.

The new 12-inch diameter water transmission pipeline conveys the imported drinking water from the new Deer Crest Pump Station to Park City’s existing Bald Eagle Tank zone.  The new transmission line is approximately one-quarter mile in length and is routed along Deer Valley Resort’s “Kimberley” ski run.


The Project affords the following benefits:

  • Energy Benefit: Reduces pumping demands between water tank zones by over 50%.  This represents a total annual energy savings of approximately One Million kilowatt hours (1M kWh). 
  • Better utilizes the available storage capacity in the Bald Eagle Tank
  • Affords JSSD an emergency connection from Park City’s water to JSSD’s water system.
