The Ogden Canyon Conduit

The Ogden Canyon Conduit is a 75-inch wood-stave pipe constructed by the Bureau of Reclamation with funds obtained from the National Industrial Recovery Act, as part of the New Deal. The Ogden Canyon Conduit is one of the few remaining examples of wood-stave conduit technology once used to transport water in Weber County, Utah.

While much of the exterior is now concrete, this is what the wooden exterior looked like in the 1950's.

A section of the pipe was replaced in 2014.
