A significant component of the Colorado River Basin Salinity Control Program is under construction near the communities of Huntington, Cleveland and Elmo in central Utah. This project, known as the Huntington-Cleveland Salinity Control Project (HCSCP), is part of the larger Price-San Rafael Rivers Unit of the Colorado River Salinity Control Program authorized in 1994 as a collaboration between the Bureau of Reclamation, the USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service, the seven Colorado River Basin states and local entities.

Ultimately, the HCSCP will provide annual control of approximately 60,000 tons of salt by improving irrigation system delivery and application on about 20,000 acres of crop and hayland. The federal and local costs are estimated to be about $65 million.
