One of the most important sites for Idaho Falls’ water system is a large hole in the ground across the street from Sandy Downs.

The gravel pit is about three acres across and 30 feet deep at its lowest point. It had been owned by the Parks and Recreation Department but had been used for little other than providing gravel to locals and storing dead tree branches.
