Salt Lake City’s wastewater treatment plant will be undergoing renovations and upgrades and the public is invited to provide input. Please tell us what you think!
Salt Lake City’s public utilities has initiated a series of Water Renew Projects to meet new nutrient water quality regulations, upgrade aging infrastructure, and address sewer system capacity limitations which are vital to ensuring high-quality wastewater treatment for our customers for years to come. Over the next several years, Salt Lake City needs to invest more than $300 million in the Water Renew Program to upgrade wastewater infrastructure on the west side of Salt Lake City. This investment is being completed in a thoughtful way to create a long-term foundation for new economic development, including the airport expansion and prison relocation.
Two of the initial projects in the Water Renew Program include a renovation of the wastewater treatment plant (water reclamation facility) near the Rose Park community and the replacement of the adjacent Influent Screenings Building which provides the first step in the wastewater treatment process.
Salt Lake City is including the community in the design phase of the Wastewater Treatment Plant renovations to develop community-centered, sustainable designs and explore ways to minimize impacts during construction.
The public is invited to provide input to:
- Ensure the design of the new facility reflects community needs and ideas
- Help the City gather concerns, ideas and feedback that will serve to shape and inform project design
Please take a moment and provide your thoughts on five topics surrounding the design and construction of the new water treatment plant, by clicking on the blue 'survey' button below.
