In March, the district plans on beginning a construction project to replace approximately three miles of existing water pipeline and add two additional miles of pipeline, according to Dan Adams, with Langdon Group Inc., which will provide 24-hour public involvement support through the process.
He said the project will also expand and improve the pressure and reliability of secondary water service to homes and businesses in Woods Cross, and increase the capacity to deliver water to Woods Cross City residents and those living in the Foxboro development in North Salt Lake.
Additionally, Adams said the project is needed to increase the reliability of secondary water delivery and replace aging infrastructure that is susceptible to leaks.
Both replacement and new pipelines will be underground, so will necessitate an open trench during construction. Some easements and crossings may have some impact on traffic and access to businesses and homes.
District and construction officials say they are soliciting the public comment to better understand and meet the needs of those in the two cities.
The project is scheduled to run through May.
