Bridal Veil Falls Flow Restoration Project
Project Update: May 2, 2022
Provo River Parkway Gates Are Now Open
Under direction of Utah County and the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT), the gates to Provo River Parkway and Old Highway (Provo Canyon Road) are now open at the Bridal Veil Falls area.
Construction Closures Removed
The Central Utah Water Conservancy District (CUWCD) construction crews have completed the majority of their work and no additional construction closures remain in place. The existing diversion structure has been moved to allow water to flow freely down the falls and into Bridal Veil pond. From there, the water can now be piped through the new pump station and pipeline under the Provo River, into CUWCD's water system and to homes and businesses across Utah.
Visitors may see construction equipment still in the area as crews complete minor finishing work. This work is expected to take place through the end of May, but all major construction milestones have been completed.
Sign Up for Updates
Central Utah Water Conservancy District (CUWCD) currently has diversion facilities at Bridal Veil Falls that allows them to collect fresh water from the mountains above. The water collected from this area is an essential piece in delivering high-quality, reliable water to residents in Utah County.
In an effort to improve the flow to Bridal Veil Falls pond, directly adjacent to the Provo River Parkway Trail, CUWCD is moving the existing diversion point from the lower plunge pool to allow water to flow freely down the falls to the pond at the base of the falls. From there, the water will be piped under the Provo River and pumped into the Olmsted Flowline through an existing pipeline, as shown in the figure to the right.
