He also stated that Ray W. Christiansen, Nephi City Manager, had completed a great deal of detailed information and had been a vital cog in the project preparation and presentation. The new storage facility will give the City a total storage capacity of The 3,000,000 gallons, approximately. tank built in recent years northeast of Nephi had, at the time of its construction, doubled the capacity, and as the canyon storage facility is replaced, the additional million gallons of storage will become available. Nephi Citys primary source of culinary water at the present time is Bradley Canyon, some five miles east of Nephi in Salt Creek Canyon. In addition to this supply of high quality water, Rees Springs is another canyon-sourc- e available to the City at periods of heavy usage or inadequate supply from the Bradley Springs. According to City officials, the Bradley Spring flow is greater in late July and August, when the usage normally is greatest. Under a water-facilit- y improvement d program several years ago, the near second north and well third west street is equipped with a pressure pump, and its normal flow into the irrigation system can be diverted into the culinary water system with sufficient pressure to fill the storage tanks northeast of Nephi and in Salt Creek Canyon. However, this facility normally has not been necessary, because of the constant spring flow and .the storage capacity. The new facility will enhance these features. Engineers for Nephi City are moving forward on the plans and specifications and within the near future will move toward the project construction.
