This is an image of the Jordon and Salt Lake City Canal as it crosses over Little Cottonwood Creek. The canal delivers water from the Jordon River, downstream of Utah Lake, to the Salt Lake City area.

On the day of my visit, There was over an inch of rain. A city worker opened a canal gate dumping Jordon River water into Little Cottonwood Creek to prevent flooding along the canal.
