Drinking Water Source Protection Plans (click on the drop down arrow to read more)...
The Drinking Water Source Protection Plan for Tooele City is available for your review at City Hall. It contains information about source protection zones, potential contamination sources, and management strategies to protect each of our drinking water sources. Potential contamination sources common in our protection areas include sanitary sewer lines, septic tanks, roads, residential, commercial and industrial areas, etc.. These sources of potential contamination are typically classified as a low susceptibility. Sources which are classified as medium susceptibility include buried fuel storage tanks, accidental spills of potential contaminants, or other similar conditions. The City has developed management strategies to further protect all of our sources from contamination. Please contact the Public Works Department at 435.843.2130, if you have questions or concerns about our source protection plan.
