The district plans to install an 11.5-mile culinary water transmission line, known as the Sand Hollow Regional Pipeline, to provide culinary water to the southern areas of Washington and St. George. The approximately $16.2 million project, expected to commence in 2017, will increase system efficiency and security and decrease treatment and pumping costs. Providing an independent loop to the system will also help protect water delivery in the event of an emergency or system maintenance or malfunction.
Water will come from the wells near Sand Hollow Reservoir, travel through Warner Valley and connect to the existing St. George and Washington municipal water systems. In addition, a concrete water storage tank will be constructed in Washington to allow for fluctuations in pumping capacity and area demands.
