CWP – North Shore Aqueduct
Construction Update January 14, 2014
Pipeline Construction Nears Completion
After eight years of planning and construction, the pipeline portion of the Central Utah Water Conservancy District Water Development Project (CWP) is nearing completion. Construction crews are finishing up a small section along 6500 West in American Fork and will then move to the last section of pipe west of 850 East in Lehi. It is anticipated that the last pipe will be placed in mid-February. Testing, restoration and clean-up will continue into spring.
The North Shore Terminal Reservoir – Phase 1, the water storage component of the project, is under construction in the Northwest corner of Saratoga Springs City and is approximately 75% completed.
Water deliveries are scheduled to begin in the summer of 2014.
The North Shore Aqueduct of the Central Utah Water Conservancy District Water Development Project (CWP) will provide approximately 53,000 acre-feet of drinking water to communities located in northern Utah and southern Salt Lake counties including but not limited to Saratoga Springs, Eagle Mountain, Lehi, as well as the Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District.
The water sources are Provo River water that has been treated at the Utah Valley Water Treatment Plant (UVWTP) located at the mouth of Provo Canyon and groundwater wells in the Vineyard area. General work hours are between 7:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Work hours could be extended if circumstances warrant.
Construction schedules are subject to change depending upon circumstances.
Updates on the pipeline’s progress and how construction will affect the public are being provided through a public information outreach program.

About the Project
The Vineyard Connector Segment is the final segment of the North Shore Aqueduct of the Central Utah Water Conservancy District Water Development Project (CWP). It connects previously installed pipelines to complete a large culinary water transmission system from water sources to communities and agencies in northern Utah and southern Salt Lake Counties.
It will consist of the installation of approximately 32,700 feet of 60-inch welded steel pipe and 1,120 feet of 48-inch welded steel pipe within easements and rights-of-way obtained by the Central Utah Water Conservancy District and will extend from approximately 600 East and Pioneer Crossing in Lehi to 1600 North and 150 West in Vineyard.
It also consists of replacing approximately 5,200 feet of 24-inch sewer line with a 48-inch sewer line for the Timpanogos Special Sewer District along with drains and manholes.
The Pioneer Crossing and the North and West Segments of the North Shore Aqueduct are already in place. This is the final segment to complete before water deliveries begin in 2014.
