The CWP generally consists of a 36-inch pipeline that conveys treated surface water from the Don A. Christiansen Regional Water Treatment Plant (DACRWTP) west to the Vineyard area where it will be mixed with high-quality groundwater from Vineyard Well Field. The mixed groundwater and surface water is conveyed in the North Shore Aqueduct (NSA), a 60-inch pipeline, northwesterly to the North Shore Terminal Reservoir, a 40-million gallon terminal storage reservoir located in northwest Saratoga Springs. Deliveries from the NSA are made to Vineyard, Lehi, Saratoga Springs, Eagle Mountain, and Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District. As demand requires, the Cascade Pumping Station and Cascade Aqueduct will be constructed to convey untreated surface water from the Provo River to the DACRWTP.
Each water treatment plant utilizes a comprehensive maintenance program to safeguard each process from equipment failure that could lead to plant disruption or threaten water quality. Protecting public health through continuously delivering high-quality drinking water requires a well-trained and dedicated staff committed to total water quality.
Central Utah Water, in its role to develop water resources and meet the water requirements of the counties within the District area, has built and currently operates water treatment plants, wells and storage facilities in Duchesne, Uintah, and Utah counties. These facilities provide dependable, quality water on a wholesale basis to meet the needs of communities, ensure public health, and maintain public trust. Our treatment operation personnel are committed to providing safe and reliable water to each of our customer agencies. The District considers protection of our sources of water we treat as the first effort to providing high quality water. The District participates in professional association, supports research projects, and continues efforts in water quality excellence through the Partnership or Safe Water program. We participate in watershed monitoring programs such as the Provo River Watershed Council and sample raw water from each of the sources to our treatment plants.
