Idea House No. 2 - April 2015

GHID is participating with West Valley City, Community Development Corporation of Utah, Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District, Central Water Reclamation Facility and others to help remodel empty, foreclosed homes in the community for a project called the Idea House. Ideas House No. 2 is located at 3888 South 2520 West. GHID is participating primarily outside of the home to redo the landscape as much as our water conservation grant money will allow. GHID will work in conjunction with JVWCD in the planning stages of the landscape design so that the property has the best plan for a water wise yard. The plan includes water wise techniques, shrubbery and a water wise sprinkler system. GHID used its staff to implement the plan. GHID is also involved on the inside of the home as well, with items such as water wise faucets and toilets.

Main Line Break - June 22, 2014

On Sunday evening, multiple GHID crews responded to a 24" PVC transmission line break at approximately 6000 West and Brud Drive. Even with numerous observers, our crews were able to secure the scene and quickly shut off the water which helped prevent any property damage from occurring. Because this was a transmission line, not a single customer was out of water. Our crews worked tirelessly throughout the night until the predawn hours to repair the damage to our line as well as the road.
