What’s Happening – July 2012

The construction of the Provo Reservoir Canal Enclosure Project is nearly complete and water is flowing through the pipe.  Work is underway to make the final wiring and connections to allow remote control of the turnouts.  Association personnel are learning how to operate this new facility.

In other areas, the Association is focused on delivering water as efficiently as possible.  The very dry winter and spring have left water shortfalls and require extra conservation efforts.

Utah County has started construction of the Murdock Canal Trail that will be on top of the Provo Reservoir Canal.  There will be more than 15 miles of paved trails, six trailheads and numerous interconnections with other trails or trail systems.

Summer 2012

Association operations personnel are learning the of the newly enclosed Provo Reservoir Canal.  This system requires a lot of coordination between releases from Deer Creek Reservoir to the Murdock Diversion on the Provo River and deliveries from turnouts along the pipeline and the final stop at the Point of the Mountain in Salt Lake County.  This low water year reminds us of the drought a few years ago.  Maintenance personnel support the operations staff by keeping facilities and equipment in the best possible working condition and by responding to alarms that may come in from remote areas.

Completion of the Provo Reservoir Canal Enclosure Project (PRCEP) remains a large effort for the Association and its consultants and contractors.  The maintenance staff continues to provide support to the PRCEP by completing small projects outside of the main contractor’s scope of work.

 Other efforts include coordination with Association shareholders and many cities with which the Association interacts.  There is also ongoing coordination with Utah County and the construction of the Murdock Canal Trail.
