Geographic Information System (SLC Mapping)
The Salt Lake City Department of Public Utilities’ GIS Division is responsible for collecting geospatial data and using a variety of analysis tools on SLCDPU utilities & service to better represent and understand our assets and SLC demands. Collected Utility data include but not limited to water, sewer, storm, and irrigation within Salt Lake City. Our water system extends to the east side of the valley to around Little Cottonwood Canyon. Our irrigation system starts at Utah Lake and flows all the way through Salt Lake City. GIS team also collaborates with our stormwater utility, U.S. Homeland Security matters, watershed protection and many other special projects.
Blue Stakes Locating: It’s the Law
Before construction can begin on roads or property, the law requires location of utility lines. Know before you Dig! Please visit here for Blue Stakes Information.
