The Covered Bridge Canyon Water Association operates a well to supply potable water for consumptive use for the subdivision of Covered Bridge Canyon. The well is in Pole Canyon, a tributary to Spanish Fork Canyon, in southern Utah County. To protect this well from contamination and to comply with Utah?s Drinking Water Source Protection Program, the subdivision is developing a Drinking Water Source Protection Plan. This report delineates the drinking water source protection zones for this well.
This report describes the delineation of drinking water source protection (DWSP) zones for a public-water-supply well in Spanish Fork Canyon, Utah County, Utah. The well is up the Right Fork of Pole Canyon at the southern end of Covered Bridge Canyon subdivision. Pole Canyon is a tributary to Spanish Fork Canyon near the southern end of the Wasatch Range. Spanish Fork Canyon is a narrow, elongated canyon formed by the Spanish Fork River. The mouth of Pole Canyon is about 2.5 miles east of the mouth of Spanish Fork Canyon. Covered Bridge Canyon subdivision is a rural bedroom community of the Wasatch Front, and most of its residents work along the Wasatch Front. The community uses the well as its public drinking-water source. Covered Bridge Canyon subdivision owns the well, and requested and assisted in this delineation of DWSP zones. The scope of work included a literature search, review of water-well logs, field reconnaissance, an aquifer test, interpretation of test data, delineation of the DWSP zones, and preparation of this report
