Daybreak’s Environmental History

Daybreak Communities is the current landowner & developer of Daybreak located in South Jordan, Utah. Originally formed as Kennecott Land by Rio Tinto, the development company was established to manage land holdings in ways that would ensure future generations have an opportunity to enjoy a great neighborhood, beautiful land, adequate water and clean air.

Daybreak Communities continues to adhere to these original goals of sustainability to create the most enduring neighborhood in Utah. As the original landowners of Daybreak, Rio Tinto Kennecott worked closely with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Utah Department of Environmental Quality (UDEQ) to develop site-specific clean-up standards for unrestricted residential development. Rio Tinto Kennecott met, and in some cases, exceeded the EPA & UDEQ standards for soil conditions for development at Daybreak.
