About Jordan Valley Water

Primarily a wholesaler of water to cities and improvement districts within Salt Lake County, Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District is one of the largest water districts in the state. Its board of nine trustees represent eight geographical divisions—some of the fastest-growing areas in the state.

Jordan Valley Water’s retail service area makes up about 10 percent of its deliveries and is primarily in unincorporated areas of the county; approximately 90 percent of its municipal water is delivered on a wholesale basis to cities and water districts.

Jordan Valley Water employs 160 people in all aspects of water: raw water, treatment, delivery, development, and conservation. With a planning horizon that extends for decades, it is tasked with meeting current water needs, managing water demands, and developing additional supplies. Its water conservation programs have led the way for other conservation initiatives around the state and continue to change the way water is used in the Salt Lake Valley.
