Project Update: Zone 3 Drinking Water Booster Pump Station Upgrades

UPDATE: 02/06/2023

The Zone 3 Drinking Water Booster Pump Station Upgrades were completed on schedule. This was a challanging project that took a lot of coordination between the District and various contractors. We'd like to thank everyone involved in making it a success. With the upgrades we will be able to keep up with the growth and continue to provide a high level of service. 

Project Update: Zone 3 Drinking Water Booster Pump Station Upgrades

Magna Water District’s Zone 3 Culinary Pump Station (Pump Station) is currently being upgraded to accommodate recent growth within the area covered by Magna Water District’s Zone 3 Area. As part of this improvement, the electricity powering the Pump Station will be upgraded from single phase to three phase and the pumps will be upgraded from 350 gpm pumps to 1,800 gpm pumps. Zone 3 service area is generally south of the railroad tracks. MWD Pressure Zone Map LINK

The upgrade work started this morning at 9:00 am and is progressing well. All improvements are scheduled to be complete by Friday, February 3, 2023. The available water storage for Zone 3 is anticipated to last beyond the scheduled completion date. If, the water tank level drops below an acceptable level or, the work is not completed by February 3, 2023, then the District will serve this zone through zone 2 piping which will reduce the available pressure but maintain water to Zone 3 until the upgrades are complete and the Pump Station is fully operational.

For any questions, please contact Magna Water District at 801-250-2118. We look forward to the improved function of the Pump Station.
