East-West Water Line
The East-West Water Line will:
- Create Well Source Redundancy: This new aqueduct will provide an additional water supply to replace or augment existing wells in the Sugarhouse area.
- Maintain SLC’s Standard of Reliability: This new line allows us to more reliably provide service in the event of a supply interruption or water line break as well as expand service delivery for the Sugar House area and the downtown and commercial/industrial core of Salt Lake City.
- Meet Future Downtown and Northwest Growth Water Demands: This line will allow for future extensions to provide additional supply to SLC’s downtown and northwest quadrant as the city grows.
Project Update: Fall/Winter 2021
Salt Lake City Department of Public Utilities (SLCDPU) is in Phase II of constructing a new water line from the water storage reservoir at 3300 South and 3500 East to 300 East.
This fall crews will begin work at the Forest Dale Golf Course to install the final stretch of water line for this phase of the project. This portion of the project will be constructed on the north perimeter of the golf course and in expected to have minimal impacts to the public, with intermittent disruptions to golf course patrons.
