West Jordan's water supply comes from two sources, the Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District (by water purchase agreements with water sources including mountain reservoirs, springs, wells, and other sources) and from City owned ground water wells located in the western region of the City.
|City Wells and Groundwater |
Well 6, CL2 & fluoride injection building
|West Jordan operates four wells at various times of the year which provide approximately 25% of the City's annual water demand. The City annually samples and monitors the water quality from the City's wells. The City has conducted a source water assessment and is implementing a groundwater protection program for each well source, including a groundwater protection ordinance. The program has identified protection zones around each well and catalogued every potential contamination source within those zones. A risk assessment was conducted to evaluate the current safeguards to prevent or reduce pollution from entering drinking water sources. The water produced from City wells is mixed and blended with other water sources as it enters the water distribution system. |

| ||Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District currently provides approximately 75% of West Jordan's annual water needs. This water comes from sources as far away as the Upper Uinta Basin through Jordanelle Reservoir and Deer Creek Reservoir, spring water from the east bench of Salt Lake Valley, and groundwater wells. Surface water sources are treated at the South East Regional Water Treatment Plant in Sandy, Utah, or at the Jordan Valley Treatment Plant in Bluffdale, Utah. This water comes into the West Jordan system at a variety of delivery points. |
