Recently the City of South Jordan completed a project that switched the source of water used to irrigate City Park from drinking water to a secondary water irrigation system.
City Park consists of 50 acres of irrigated turf, and the conversion will save $133,000 per year by not using drinking water. Annual savings will increase each year as the cost of drinking water increases. In total, more than 256 acre feet or 86,000,000 gallons of drinking water will be saved annually. The amount of drinking water saved and conserved is enough to supply 465 homes annually, both indoor and outdoor usage.
City Park is located at 11010 South Redwood Road and features fields used for football, soccer, baseball, softball, playgrounds and more.
