Orem-Salt Lake County pipeline breaks ground

Construction will soon begin on a 21-mile pipeline to deliver tap water from Provo Canyon to the border of Salt Lake County and towns along the way. The $150 million pipeline will replace an open ditch. The project is being underwritten by canal shareholders, the Central Utah Water Conservancy District, the U.S. Department of the Interior and a $60 million state loan. Ogden Standard-Examiner
