"This interim report summarizes how information was gathered, the overall study process, and it outlines how potential alternatives will be carried forward in the years ahead," Basin Study Activity Manager Robert Schattin said.
This was a collaborative effort involving a stakeholder's workgroup which included the Henry's Fork Watershed Council, irrigation districts, conservation organizations, universities, the Henry's Fork Foundation, as well as federal and state agencies. The interim report identifies a wide range of reconnaissance-level alternatives listed under five subheadings that include:
- Existing and new surface storage alternatives
- Managed ground water recharge
- Agricultural conservation and management
- Municipal and Industrial conservation alternatives
- Market based alternatives
The final phase of the study will last about a year and conclude with a final basin study report by the end of 2013.
