In order for Saratoga Springs, Utah, to continue to grow at its current rate, additional storage was needed in its pressurized irrigation system. HAL provided design and construction management services for a 17-acre-foot concrete-lined storage pond and a 3,200 gallon-per-minute pump station.
HAL planned, designed, and oversaw construction of a 10,000 gpm irrigation pump station adjacent to Utah Lake. The new project provides water to the City’s growing southern area and allows the City to utilize Utah Lake water rights rather than canals.
HAL was recently selected to design three new deep, large-diameter wells for the Central Utah Water Conservancy District, extending HAL’s role into the next phase of the largest groundwater development project in Utah.
The Central Utah Water Conservancy District contracted HAL to plan, design, and manage a groundwater development project that will supply water to some 160,000 people. The project is the largest of its kind in Utah, with some of the state’s largest and deepest wells.
HAL performed the Vulnerability Assessment (VA) for all of the District’s facilities following the Bioterrorism Act of 2002. The scope included prioritization of all of the facilities, determination of the Design Basis Threat, evaluation of the consequence for the loss of each facility, evaluation of the effectiveness of the existing protection systems, calculation of the relative risk to each facility, and generation of recommendations to reduce the risk at each facility. Site visits were made to each of the District’s facilities to verify critical assets and existing protection systems.
HAL assisted the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources with design review and construction support for a new fish screen at Red Fleet Reservoir near Vernal, Utah. The screen keeps non-native game fish from entering the Colorado River system where they would otherwise compete with endangered species.
HAL was part of a multi-firm team that designed this $18 million project in Cache County, Utah. It enclosed several canals using precast concrete box culvert, cast-in-place concrete box culvert, reinforced concrete pipe (RCP), PVC pipe, and HDPE pipe. The project also included a new diversion structure on the Logan River with fish screens and an automatic brush cleaning system. The project was designed, constructed, and opened in just over one year. In 2013 it was named “Outstanding Municipal/Utility Project” by Utah Construction & Design.
