Water and Waste Water Service
Jordanelle Special Service District has a very unique and complex infrastructure in place to serve the citizens of the Jordanelle Basin in Wasatch County for both water delivery and waste water systems.
JSSD’s system is unique in terms of the locations and terrain involved in serving the water users within the District. The system includes: 18 separate sewer facilities (including a new water reclamation facility), 18 stand-by generators, 23 water booster and well sites, 73 Pressure Reducing Valve stations and 18 tank sites.
In addition to the water users within the District, JSSD also provides water service to neighboring agencies including North Village Special Service District and Park City Water Service District.
Keetley Water Treatment Plant
The Keetley Water Treatment Plant was designed by EWP Engineering, and constructed by Ames Construction. Construction was completed in 2000. The Keetley water treatment plant is a two-process plant, designed to meet State UPDES permit requirements and to deliver high quality drinking water to customers within the Jordanelle Special Service District service area.
Water Reclamation Facility
The Jordanelle Water Reclamation Facility is a state-of-the-art membrane, bio-reactor wastewater treatment plant. The first process is a bio-reactor. Then, in order to meet stringent discharge standards, the wastewater goes through a membrane filter and a Ultra-Violet disinfection process. Treated effluent will meet all applicable State and Federal requirements for re-use water. The WRF was designed by Bowen & Collins, Engineering, and constructed by Gerber Construction.
Miners and Maintenance
JSSD owns and maintains the Ontario Drain Tunnel # 2 which serves as a unique water source for the operations of its water service delivery system. The Ontario Drain Tunnel is part of the historic mine workings of the old Park City mines.
JSSD employs a team of professional miners which operate and maintain the Drain Tunnel on behalf of the water users associated with the Ontario Drain Tunnel # 2. The District oversees the on-going maintenance activities and daily work that is required to keep this as a viable water source for all of the water users that rely on the tunnel for their water rights.
JSSD also contracts with neighboring area agencies to assist with their mine maintenance needs.
