The District was organized in 1950 and currently provides water and wastewater services to a population of approximately 130,000 in a 24.5 square mile area in the central portion of Salt Lake County. The District employs 76 people and operates and maintains more than 375 miles of water lines, eight storage reservoirs, eight deep water wells, approximately 350 miles of wastewater collection lines and 17 wastewater pump stations. The District continues to upgrade its infrastructure to ensure that these assets are maintained in proper working order and that they comply with all state and federal regulations.
In 1953 Granger-Hunter had 312 connections. By 1960, the number of connections grew to 3,149. In the three decades that followed, the District grew to more than 20,000 connections. By 2020, the total number of connections had risen to over 26,000.
To keep up with the continual growth, in 1978 the District entered into an inter-local agreement with 2 cities and 4 improvement districts to construct the Central Valley Water Reclamation Facility. This facility processes all of the wastewater for Granger-Hunter.
In addition to its own water sources, the District has entered into a contract to purchase culinary water from Jordan Valley Water Conservancy District. For 2021, Granger-Hunter purchased 5.76 billion gallons and produced 1.65 billion gallons for a total of 7.42 billion gallons of water.
