Spanish Fork Provo Reservoir Canal Pipeline Orem Reach 1B
Orem Reach 1B provides water from the Strawberry Reservoir through a pipeline to the location of a large vault (30 x 113 FT) located at the mouth of Provo Canyon. The concrete structure allows the owner to discharge water into the Provo River to maintain water flows and to send water via the Provo River Aqueduct to various water agencies in Utah and Salt Lake counties. 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.
The concrete structure is built on solid bedrock 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 project was completed 30 days ahead of schedule.
