Construction at The Salt Lake City Cemetery:
We are very excited to announce the installation of a new efficient automated sprinkler system to replace the old system that has been in use on the west half of our great and historic Cemetery for many years.
This project was started in August of 2013 with a tentative completion date of April of 2014. We want to apologize for any hardship or inconvenienc this project might cause and encourage anyone with concerns to contact the Cemetery Office so they can be addressed. Presently the active construction is taking place in the southwest area of the Cemetery. Updates will be made as this project progresses and moves through the west half of the Cemetery.
Thank you for your understanding during this project.
