Spanish Fork Provo Reservoir Canal Pipeline Orem Reach 1B
The Orem Reach 1B project is a project to provide water from the Strawberry Reservoir through the pipeline to the location of the vault/structure located at the mouth of Provo Canyon. The concrete structure allows the owner to discharge water into the Provo River to maintain water flows to send water via the Provo River Aqueduct to various water agencies in Utah and Salt Lake counties. The concrete structure is built on a solid bed rock with concrete fill placed below the structure for stability. The structure has many large pipe penetrations and angles that made concrete construction challenging. The structure is partially below grade and above grade. The exterior received a brick veneer and stucco finish. The structure allows the owner to supply water that will be a major key component to the expansion and growth of Utah in the coming years.
