FAQS

How long is construction expected to last?

Construction is anticipated to last approximately 12 months.

 

How will construction affect traffic?

While some of the pipeline construction will occur off of city streets, construction may create some traffic concerns.  Construction areas and any detours will be well marked. Construction on the pipeline may be taking place in several locations at the same time.

The best way to know what to anticipate is to receive weekly construction updates by email.  Join our email list by sending an email to spanishforkpipeline@gmail.com or by calling our Public Information and Help Line at 801-380-0850.

 

What is the anticipated schedule?

Please click on Schedule in the bar above.

 

How will construction proceed?

Crews will dig a trench, lay the pipe and cover it as they move along in one direction.  Later, the roadway, any landscaping or irrigation that may have been disturbed will be restored.  At times conditions such as utility conflicts, weather or public safety may require crews to move from one location to another.  Safety and consideration for those living or working near the construction is our top priority as is protecting workers, pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers.

 

Will my water, sewer service or any other utilities be affected?

No planned water, sewer or other utility disruptions are anticipated during construction.

 

If I live along the construction route will I be notified as construction proceeds?

 Yes.  Notifications will be made for road closures and detours, planned utility disruptions (if necessary), work affecting access to your property, paving schedules, excessive noise or extended work schedules.

PROJECT OVERVIEW

The Spanish Fork Santaquin Pipeline-will deliver municipal water to cities in south Utah County for outdoor secondary systems.  The Spanish Fork Reach is the first step in bringing water to the cities of South Utah County transporting water from Strawberry Reservoir via constructed tunnels and pipelines to Wasatch Front cities in south Utah County and in Salt Lake County, stretching from Santaquin in the south to Salt Lake City in the north.

Construction consists of furnishing and installing approximately 8,480 feet of 60-inch steel pipeline, each with welded joints, mortar lining, and tape and mortar coating and approximately 230 feet of 72-inch jacked casings under two Union Pacific Railroads along with modification of existing concrete structures, asphalt paving, earthwork and other appurtenances and related work.

The construction contract was awarded to Condie Construction., a Springville-based civil construction firm, in April 2017. The contract amount for the project is approximately $15 million dollars.

An emergency isolation valve was constructed near the beginning of the Spanish Fork Canyon Pipeline at the mouth of Diamond Fork Creek. The emergency valves provide the means to close the flow of the pipeline in the event of a major catastrophe in the valley, such as an earthquake, and evacuate the water flowing through the Diamond Fork System into the Spanish Fork River and Utah Lake.
