RIVERTON, Utah, July 16, 2016 (Gephardt Daily) — Riverton City is alerting its residents that it has shut down the secondary water source to the city due to the algae bloom at Utah Lake.
In a statement on its website, the city said the state is conducting tests to ensure the public’s safety.
Utah Lake serves as a source for Riverton City’s secondary water supply, so city officials are temporarily shutting down the irrigation water supply.
There have been no reports of any safety issues, but the city said they are taking precautionary measures.
It is not clear how long the secondary water supply will be shut off, but city officials said they will continue to monitor the situation closely and provide any updates as they receive them.
