Nephi City’s existing culinary water system does not meet the current requirements of the Utah Division of Drinking Water Rules. Culinary water source capacity and storage capacity are currently inadequate. In addition, many distribution pipelines are undersized. Valve spacing requires large areas of the system to be isolated to repair leaks or conduct maintenance. Many existing fire hydrants are antiquated. With exception of components installed in recent sub-divisions and the blue tank, which is 44 years old, the entire system is over 50 years old.
Nephi City has an immediate need for additional source capacity, storage capacity, distribution system piping upgrades, additional distribution system valves, fire hydrant upgrades, and upgrades to the disinfection system to bring the system into compliance with the Rules.
