Spring Activities

The Provo Reservoir Canal Enclosure Project is nearing completion.  This is requiring a lot of effort to inspect, test and start up the pipeline.  All of this activity is occurring as the runoff of 2012 is beginning.    

During the last part of April, the enclosed Provo Reservoir Canal (PRC) will be filled for hydrotesting.  In this test, the pipe is filled with water and pressurized.  This pressure is held for a time to see if all of the many valves and the many miles of welds will hold as they should.

Around May 1st, the PRC will be placed into service.  All of the turnout structures, control valves, manway access points and air evacuation valves are in place.  Approximately 50% of the control valves have the remote control capability installed and functioning.  This capability is referred to as Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition or SCADA.  The SCADA system allows operators to control the PRC remotely and will be available to all control valves later in the summer.  A combination of Association and contractor personnel will monitor the PRC throughout this summer to make sure all components are functioning properly.

 As the weather and conditions allow, maintenance crews will be moving up to provide preventative maintenance to facilities and equipment located in higher elevations.  Crews will also work in the Kamas Valley to restore fencing that was damaged during the winter.
