and Finding of No Significant Impact
The purpose of the proposed action is to increase the water supply to the Strawberry High Line Canal Lateral 20 which serves 4,500 acres west of Payson, Utah. A pump station would be constructed on Spring Creek where it crosses Red Bridge below the Strawberry High Line Canal Later 20 and deliver 1,800 acre-feet of water annually to Lateral 20. An average of 600 acre-feet of this water would be used to supplement the current irrigation water being delivered in Lateral 20 and would benefit agriculture lands that have an insufficient water supply. About 1,200 acre-feet of this water would replace Strawberry Project water currently being delivered in Lateral 20. This replaced Strawberry Project water would then be delivered to municipal secondayr water irrigation systems within the project area such as the city of Payson and the town of Spring Creek.
