In 2005, the CUWCD purchased water rights from Geneva Steel and developed a large and complex water system development plan, together with its associated engineering, financial, and economic aspects, to provide supplemental culinary water on a wholesale basis and develop the water supply within the abilities of the CUWCD and its interested customer agencies. Signing of water supply agreements with customer agencies commenced in 2008, immediately before the economic downturn in Utah, and have continued into 2015. The CWP started initial partial water deliveries in 2011 and more complete water deliveries to customers in 2014 and is continuing in its construction, development, and water deliveries. - This presentation provides a summary of the challenges of and updates on the status of construction of the system, water deliveries as compared to the initial plans, and the financial aspects of the CWP water supply agreements. - After 11 years from the conception of the initial development plan, the CWP is an example of a successful development and current operation of a large new wholesale water system in Utah to provide supplemental culinary water to expanded areas of southern Salt Lake and Northern Utah Counties’ communities.
