Riverton, South Jordan and Herriman Secondary Water Systems Shutdown After Canal Leak
RIVERTON, Utah – Riverton City’s secondary water system will be impacted by a canal leak, according to city officials. Herriman City service will also be interrupted for 48-72 hours or until further notice. South Jordan City said secondary water is shut down until further notice.
A canal leak on the Welby Jacob Canal has forced the canal company to shut down the canal to repair damage, according to the city website.
“This means that Riverton City’s secondary water system will either be shutdown or experience low pressure in (approximately) all areas west of 3200 W. The extent of the canal’s damage is unknown at this time and could mean Riverton residents who live west of 3200 W (approximately) will have no secondary water or experience low pressure anywhere between 1 day and 1 week,” according to the site.
“This will impact outdoor watering,” said Casey Saxton, a spokesperson for Riverton City.
