Over the past several weeks Lehi City workers have been digging up trenches throughout Lehi City streets. The city received a block grant to improve the pressurized irrigation lines and has nearly completed the work. The project was funded from a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG). Lehi City received funding from the state of Utah to complete the project. According to Gary Thomas, Lehi’s pressurized irrigation lead, “the project began on April 11 and is expected to be completed this Thursday, May 5.” S&L Construction is laying new 8”inch irrigation main line pipes. The main line is now installed and testing will be commence this week.
Lehi became eligible to receive CDBG funds when we reached 50,000 residents. These funds can be used for local community development activities such as affordable housing, anti-poverty programs, and infrastructure development.
Christie Hutchings, of the Lehi City planning department is the coordinator for CDBG funds.
