Construction Begins on Secondary Water Pond

Construction Begins on Secondary Water Pond

During the past few weeks construction has begun on a new secondary water pond at the mouth of Hobble Creek Canyon.  The primary purpose of the pond will be to provide secondary water to the west side of Springville where substantial infrastructure is already in place to deliver non-culinary water to residents and businesses.

The exciting news is that this pond will also be available for recreational purposes too!  A large, sandy beach area will allow families to relax and swim.  The pond is planned to be stocked with fish for local fishermen and trails will connect into the existing trail networks.

The pond is being paid for through a grant from Central Utah Water Conservancy District.  Recreational amenities will be paid primarily through Park Impact Fees.  Construction of the pond will last well into next year and then parking lots and other infrastructure will need to be built.  The pond should be open for public use in 2015.
