Water Advisory continues for Utah Lake, Jordan River and the Salt Lake County canal system

Elevated levels of harmful bacteria cause by the Utah Lake algae bloom have been found in the Jordan River and Salt Lake County canal system.

Residents and their pets are strongly advised to avoid using water, or coming into contact with water from the Jordan River or canals. Salt Lake City’s drinking water comes from a different source and is NOT impacted by this issue. For more information visit the Utah DEQ webpage.
