This project will replace the existing Influent Screenings Building at the Salt Lake City Water Reclamation Facility located at 1250 Reclamation Road (1250 West 1475 North). Influent screening facilities are the first step in the wastewater treatment process. As wastewater enters the treatment facility, the water is screened. This preliminary screening removes large objects from the wastewater such as rags, paper, plastics and metals to prevent damage to the rest if the water treatment system. Influent screening facilities also remove large dirt and grit, provide odor control and help manage water flow.
The new Influent Screenings Building will help increase the flow and capacity of the wastewater treatment facility and upgrade the current electrical and mechanical systems in an effort to meet regulatory requirements.This project will be built to an Envision Platinum standard, making it one of the most energy efficient facilities in Salt Lake City's system; setting a standard for future projects.New odor control measures will also be included to address some current odor issues and prevent new odors in the future.
The project is currently in the design phase.
This project is part of an overall effort to upgrade and improve the sewer, water and storm drain systems. This improved infrastructure will support and foster economic development throughout Salt Lake City.
The preferred site of the new Influent Screenings Building is adjacent and directly south of the current facility.
Salt Lake City Public Utilities (SLCPU) underwent an extensive public engagement process with City residents in order to inform the planning and design elements for updates to the Water Reclamation Facility in Rose Park, the facility that treats the wastewater for all of Salt Lake City. Feedback was collected through interviews with key stakeholders in the immediate vicinity, a design workshop held on October 24, 2016, and through public comment online on Open City Hall with input received from over 100 individuals.
This public engagement process has assisted SLCPU in (1) Ensuring the design of the new facility reflects community needs and ideas and (2) in helping the City gather concerns, ideas and feedback that will serve to shape and inform project design identifying areas of potential design challenge. The feedback received is summarized by topic and focused on the design and construction of the Water Reclamation Facility and Influent Screenings facility.Community
Design for the Influent Screenings facility is underway with construction anticipated in Spring 2018.
Following the design phase, a contractor will be selected and construction of the new Influent Screening will begin. Once a contractor is selected and a construction schedule is identified, construction impacts and more detailed information will be available. Construction impacts and the project schedule will be directly communicated to nearby residents and businesses.
SLC Public Utilities is committed to working with everyone who may be impacted by this project. We will notify residents directly before beginning work and we will be working continuously to proactively reach out to all parents, businesses and community members. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions or concerns or to sign up for updates on the project. See contact information below.Phone: 801-721-1438
