Salt Lake City, Utah
Released On: March 29, 2010
The Narrows Project SDEIS describes the effects of Reclamation issuing to the Sanpete Water Conservancy District (SWCD) a loan pursuant to the authority of the Small Reclamation Projects Act, as well as issuing to the SWCD a right of use of federal lands in accordance with Reclamation law. These Reclamation actions would facilitate the construction by SWCD of the proposed Narrows Dam and Reservoir, a non-federal project proposed to be located on Gooseberry Creek in Sanpete County, Utah. The loan application and request for a right of use of federal lands by SWCD to build the Narrows Project is intended to meet the purpose of developing an irrigation and municipal and industrial supply source for water users in northern Sanpete County. Reclamation's release of this SDEIS does not imply either approval or denial of the Small Reclamation Projects Act loan application or the request for authorization to use withdrawn lands. If Reclamation approves the Small Reclamation Projects Act loan and right of use of federal lands in accordance with Reclamation law, and Congress appropriates the necessary funds, a supplemental water supply would be developed by SWCD.
