Scenic Tank Replacement Project – this project includes the replacement of an existing tank east of Bunkerville with a new 2-million-gallon water storage tank. The project was recently bid and awarded to Byrd Underground. However, with the long lead time of steel and other materials, construction is not likely to commence until early 2023.

Pioneer Boulevard Waterline Replacement Project – this project includes the replacement of waterline in the Pioneer Blvd/Falcon Ridge Pkwy intersection and in each direction up Pioneer Blvd and Falcon Ridge Parkway. The project is scheduled to bid in November 2022 and commence construction in January 2023.

Treatment Plant #35 – this project includes an arsenic treatment plant facility and equipping Well #35 (off of Mesquite Heights Rd) and will provide additional source capacity for the continued growth in the service area.
