WCWID Source Protection

White City Water Improvement District, with the help of Sunrise engineering, has updated our Drinking Water Source Protection Plan. It contains pertinent information about source protection zones, potential contamination sources, and WCWID’s management strategies to protect our drinking water. All of our drinking water and water used for landscaping or irrigation comes from deep wells that pull from an underground aquifer, so identifying possible contaminants that can leach into the ground is our number one concern. The plan includes potential contamination sources common in our protection area which include: pesticides, fertilizers, household hazardous wastes, roadways, and detention ponds among others. Fact sheets for possible contaminants are available at our office or on our website www.wcwid.org.  Due to the depth of our wells and steps we have taken to protect the points of contamination at the wells we have a low to medium susceptibility to potential contamination. WCWID has developed management strategies to further protect our wells from possible future contamination, complying with source protection ordinances of Sandy City, White City Metro Township and Salt Lake County. Please contact us at (801)571-3991, if you have any questions or concerns about our source protection plan. Additional information regarding potential contamination sources and source protection ordinances can be found using the links below.
