SECONDARY WATER SHUTDOWNS
Due to the toxic algae bloom in Utah Lake, the secondary water has become compromised. The DEQ is advising the water not be used for livestock or irrigation until the situation can be better assessed. Although the canals continue to run water, as a safety precaution South Jordan City has shut down the connections to the public secondary water system on the Welby Jacob, South Jordan, and Utah/Salt Lake Canals. The Utah Lake canal has switched to a different water source that is not affected by the algae, users may continue to safely use the secondary water.

Unknown persons have been contacting residents to install a cheap water connection to the drinking water. These connections are illegal and dangerous, it will put your family at risk of being exposed to the contaminated water. Please contact the city ASAP if you are approached by these people at 801-446-HELP or publicworks@sjc.utah.gov. If you choose to reconnect to the drinking water please make sure you meet all of the backflow prevention requirements to make sure it is safe. More information on the requirements is available here www.sjc.utah.gov/backflow.asp or by contacting the water division at 801-446-HELP.

Those who have access to the secondary water on private systems should also follow the DEQ's recommendation to temporarily stop using the water for irrigation or livestock.

South Jordan opted to sample the fish ponds and Mulligan's water hazards and has found small amounts of the blue-green algae present. Please be sure to stay out of the water and to keep pets out of the water until further notice. We will continue monitoring the algae levels to be sure it is not growing and will post new information here.

At this time none of the agencies are able to determine how long the algae bloom will be affecting the water, but they are monitoring it very closely to make sure we have the most current information. As new information is received from the DEQ and the canal companies it will be posted here, Facebook and on Twitter.

This issue does not affect the drinking water but the secondary irrigation water only.
