7000 South Utility Project - Phase 1, 2 and 3 Project Description
7000 South Phase 2 and 3 Construction Flier
The City of West Jordan is managing three phases of work along 7000 South. Phase one was completed during the 2016 construction season. Phases 2 and 3 begin in February 2017. The work includes upgrades to various utility systems, including the storm water collection system, sanitary sewer collection system, culinary water distribution system, and installing a secondary water transmission system.
Storm Drain: The storm drain improvements will be performed between the Jordan River and Constitution Park (3200 West). Improvements include installing an upgraded pipeline and box culvert, and additional water collection boxes, and creating a detention basin at Constitution Park. These changes will increase storm drain capacity and improve drainage on 7000 South. (Phase one between the Jordan River and 1300 West was completed during the 2016 construction season.)
Sanitary Sewer: The sewer improvements will be performed between 1300 West and Bangerter Highway. Improvements include upgrading and consolidating existing pipes.
Culinary Water: Culinary water improvements will be performed between 1300 West and Redwood Road. Improvements include installing upgraded lines to increase water capacity, operational control and fire coverage in this area.
