District Achievements

The District continues to master plan to address the growing needs of its population including expansion of a secondary water system to control culinary capital costs and to enhance water conservation efforts.  Innovation and responsible thinking make it possible for the District to create long term water resources and supply.
The District works closely with the Magna Chamber of Commerce and Salt Lake County in building a solid redevelopment agency to ensure a healthy economic infrastructure and sustainable water supply for the future.
The District received notoriety and praise for its projects in letters of support from former Utah Governor Olene S. Walker, Utah State Senator and President of the Utah Taxpayers Association Howard Stephenson, and the State of Utah Department of Environmental Quality Drinking Water Board. The District has worked to develop technology to address this situation through improvements to water quality, sustainability, and protection of our limited water resources for the future. From infrastructure enhancements and expansion, to service and water conservation, the District has been able to develop solid methodologies to reduce contaminants to ensure a safe supply.

In February 2008, the District and Carollo Engineers were recognized in the Deseret News collectively as one of "13 Utah inventors" for our innovative technology in removal and destruction of arsenic and perchlorate under the patent Biodestruction of blended residual oxidants (BIOBROx) Patent No. 7,318,895.

In 2007, the District received a national award from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for its dedicated efforts for “Sustainable Health Protection” through exceptional creativity in designing projects that promote sustainability and protect public health.

Finally, in 2005, the District and Carollo Engineers were recognized by the American Water Works Association for their approach in water treatment technologies in a published report. Both organizations were invited by the EPA Office of Research and Development in Cincinnati, Ohio to present highlights from their pilot study project.

As an approved water supplier, the District meets or exceeds all local, state, and federal mandates and remains current on industry trends and advancements.
