FY24 Appropriations Requests

1. City of South Jordan Culinary Water Tank Construction Project:

  • Recipient: City of South Jordan, Utah
  • Location: 1600 W. Towne Center Drive, South Jordan, Utah 84095
  • Amount: $ 5,000,000
  • Justification: The funding would be used for construction of an 8.3-million-gallon culinary water tank to provide culinary water to approximately 2,400 acres of property to be developed. The project is an appropriate use of taxpayer funds because the integrity of the City of South Jordan Water system relies on the construction of water tanks as the City receives all of the culinary water used from Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District (JVWCD). JVWCD will not provide fire flow storage or peak flow storage in their system. Therefore, in order to provide fire protection needs and peak flow demand requirements the Culinary Water Tanks are a necessity for the taxpayers and citizens of the City of South Jordan.

2. Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District’s Flow Control Vault Retrofit and Replacement Project:

  • Recipient: Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District
  • Location: 8215 S. 1300 W. West Jordan, UT 84088
  • Amount: $ 3,920,000

Approximately 90 percent of the supply is delivered on a wholesale basis to cities or improvement districts, and the remaining 10 percent is delivered directly to retail customers. This project would replace or rehabilitate critical system components necessary to maintain reliable water service to the population served. Specifically, the funding would replace Control Vault valves, fittings, and appurtenant equipment for drinking water transmission pipeline flow control station facilities. at multiple stations across various locations. Rocky Mountain Power (RMP) provides electric utility service in the JVWCD service area and is actively investing in programs to reduce the carbon footprint of its power generating facilities. The programs include new renewable generating resources and incentives for large-scale efficiency improvement projects.

  • Location: 1800 West 4700 South, Taylorsville, Utah 84129
  • Amount: $ 1,600,000
  • Justification: The funding would be used to replace one of the main waterlines that is used to convey water from the water district’s water wells to treatment sites and reservoirs that serve Taylorsville and surrounding communities. The existing water line is in significant disrepair and much of the community’s drinking water is in danger of disruption.

4. West Jordan 1300 West Reconstruction Project:

  • Recipient: City of West Jordan
  • Location: 8000 South Redwood Road, West Jordan, Utah 84088
  • Amount: $ 4,500,000
  • Justification: The funding would be used to reconstruct the existing roadway which needs to be widened to handle current traffic patterns; 1300 West is also in need of sidewalks to provide safe walking routes and disability access. 1300 West is the access point to the Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District, which provides water to the southwest portion of Salt Lake County; 1300 West also provides alternate access to Camp Williams (Utah National Guard headquarters).

6. Payson City Pre-Disaster Mitigation Project

  • Recipient: City of Payson
  • Location: 439 W. Utah Avenue, Payson, Utah 84651
  • Amount: $1,500,000
  • Justification: The funding would be used to replace existing box culverts with larger and stronger box culverts in Payson City along Dry Creek. Because of burn scars from a 2018 wildfire, Dry Creek has experienced increased runoff and debris flows. The project is an appropriate use of taxpayer funds because replacing these culverts would increase the conveyance capacity to handle increased flows, thus protecting residents and businesses in Utah’s 4th District from flood damage and harm.

7. Kearns Improvement District Water Supply Repair and Resiliency Project

  • Recipient: Kearns Improvement District
  • Location: 5350 W. 5400 S., Kearns, Utah 84118
  • Amount: $1,524,000
  • Justification: The funding would be used to replace the water lines servicing Kearns Junior High School. Many of the existing mains are undersized cast iron pipes and have begun to deteriorate.

  • Recipient: Town of Cedar Fort
  • Location: 50 East Center Street, Cedar Fort, Utah 84013
  • Amount: $4,600,000
  • Justification: The funding would be used to complete a much-needed culinary water project. Cedar Fort is expected to continue to grow considerably in the next few years.

  • Recipient: Mt. Pleasant City
  • Location: 106 West Main, Mt. Pleasant, Utah 84647
  • Amount: $1,500,000
  • Justification: The funding would be used to upsize the tank in Mt. Pleasant’s water treatment plant from their current 10,000-gallon tank to a 500,000-gallon tank. The project is an appropriate use of taxpayer funds because funding would improve and sustain services for a rural community.

  • Recipient: Juab County Sheriff’s Office
  • Location: 425 West Sheep Lane, nephi, Utah 84648
  • Amount: $604,320

11. Highway 132 Improvement Project:

  • Recipient: Sanpete County
  • Location: 160 North Main, Manti, Utah 84642
  • Amount: $2,500,000
  • Justification: The funding would be used to improve Highway 132 from Nephi to Fountain Green, UT. Currently, the highway is narrow and dangerous. This project would widen the highway and add passing lanes.

  • Recipient: City of Ephraim
  • Location: 5 South Main Street, Ephraim, Utah 84627
  • Amount: $4,080,000
  • Justification: This project would expand Ephraim’s wastewater treatment capacity by adding an additional 11-acre treatment pond as well as some pre-treatment screening equipment on the influent. This would remove some of the solids going into Ephraim’s treatment system to help the remaining treatment process be more effective. This project would give Ephraim the extra capacity needed to stay within the EPA guidelines.

  • Recipient: Central Valley Water Reclamation Facility
  • Location: 800 Central Valley Road, Salt Lake City, Utah 84119
  • Amount: $4,000,000
  • Justification: The funding would be used to upgrade the treatment facility to meet new environmental regulations, population growth, and rehabilitate aging infrastructure. This project replaces 35-year-old end-of-life biosolids dewatering equipment and adds additional biosolids storage silo capacity to address growth within the service area. Although this project is located in Utah’s Second District (just outside the boundary of UT04), this project would provide vital wastewater services to 7 cities located in Utah’s Fourth District (Murray, Taylorsville, West Valley City, Kearns, Sandy City, Midvale, and Millcreek).

14. Salt Lake Community College Radiology Technology Facility Renovation Project:

  • Recipient: Salt Lake Community College
  • Location: 4600 S. Redwood Road, Salt Lake City, Utah 84123
  • Amount: $819,159.79
  • Justification: The funding would be used to upgrade technology and increase space in the radiation technology building. The current facility’s permanent radiology technology equipment was built and installed in 2008 and can no longer be maintained to required standards as radiographic image acquisition equipment and software has vastly advanced in the last decade.

15. Salt Lake City Corporation’s Marcus to Artesian Basin Transmission Line Phase 2 Project Renovation Project:
