The Tooele Valley Airport currently serves as an important facility in expanding the types of aviation services available in the Wasatch Front region and in Utah’s wildland firefighting efforts; however, the small facility itself doesn’t have water or sewage connections.

This is largely because it was essentially out in the middle of nowhere when Salt Lake City acquired the general aviation airport in 1993. The small airfield is located between Stansbury Park and Grantsville in Tooele County; at the time, neither of those cities could offer utilities to the airport, says Brady Fredrickson, the planning director for the Salt Lake City Department of Airports.

“The county hadn’t developed the system that was close to the airport,” he said in an interview with KSL.com Friday. “For years and years, it was a long distance to get any water or sewer to this facility.”
