Draft Environmental Assessment
The Uintah Water Conservancy District located in Uintah County, Utah, has requested authorization from the Bureau of Reclamation to modify the existing Steinaker Service Canal, a feature of the Vernal Unit of the Central Utah Project, into a pressurized pipeline. The Vernal Unit was established to provide a firm water supply to land in Ashley Valley. The Vernal Unit consists of Steinaker Dam and Reservoir, Fort Thornburg Diversion, Steinaker Feeder Canal, and Steinaker Service Canal. The Vernal Unit supplies supplemental irrigation water either by direct delivery through the Steinaker Service Canal or by exchange through the existing canals above the Steinaker Service Canal.
