Project Background

Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District (JVWCD) is expanding the Southwest Aqueduct Reach 2 (SWA-2), which is a 66-inch pipeline to add additional water capacity for the growing communities of Bluffdale, Herriman, Riverton, South Jordan, and West Jordan. This project will construct a new segment of the SWA-2 along 3200 West between 11800 South and 13400 South.

The Jordan Aqueduct is a 72-inch (6 feet) to 78-inch diameter underground pressurized pipeline that supplies drinking water to most areas within the Salt Lake Valley. SWA-2 will run parallel with the Jordan Aqueduct, which extends nearly 40 miles from the mouth of Provo Canyon to 2100 South in Salt Lake City and is owned by the United States Bureau of Reclamation (USBR). Through a contract with USBR, Jordan Valley Water is responsible for operating and maintaining the Jordan Aqueduct and for protecting it from the impacts of urban development.
