In 2013 the culinary water line between 2900 North and Oak Lane in Layton was leaking and was temporarily put out of service. This pipeline is concrete pipe and was installed in the late 1950's. After some evaluation, it was determined that the pipe barrels were in good condition and that the leaks were coming from the old gaskets between pipe joints. The District has decided to slipline the old pipeline with a High Density Polyethylene Pipe (HDPE pipe) to rehabilitate the old pipe. This work will begin in March 2019 and will continue throughout the fall of 2019. The sliplining process will disturb less residents than the traditional open-cut trenching method, however, some disturbances will occur to residents in the vicinity of the project. Below is a map of the project. Thank you for your patience as we upgrade this important culinary water line. If you have questions or concerns, please call Paige with the Langdon Group at 385-515-0441.
