Excess storm water from the City of West Jordan is discharged into regional canals, natural drainage channels, and the Jordan River. All new development is required to detain on-site and release into a City system at a prescribed rate. The Utility Planning Division identifies areas with possible flooding potential and must approve any new discharges into the public system.
