St. Vincent de Paul Parish and School use pond water on the lawns and other vegetation. Water from Big Cottonwood Creek travels through our property and collects in a pond at the southeast corner of the playing fields. From there, the water is pumped to the sprinklers around the property. We are proud to conserve resources by using our pond water!
