Final Environmental Assessment
Central Utah Project Completion Act Section 207 and
Contributed Funds Act Funding for
Provo Reservoir Canal Enclosure and Increased Capacity

Back to Environmental Documents

This final Environmental Assessment analyzes two federal actions related to the Provo Reservoir Canal (PRC), a feature of the Provo River Project located in Utah County, UT. The federal actions are for the Department of the Interior, Central Utah Project Completion Act Office and Reclamation to provide funding pursuant to Section 207 of the Central Utah Project Completion Act (Titles II-VI of P.L. 102-575) and the Contributed Funds Act (43 U.S.C. 395), respectively, to enlarge and enclose the PRC. The proposed increase in capacity of the PRC would be from 550 cfs to 630 cfs, beginning at approximately 800 North in Orem, Utah, and from 550 cfs to 585 cfs at the northern terminus of the canal, in order to provide reliable future delivery of water from the Central Utah Project, Utah Lake Drainage Basin Water Delivery System (ULS) to Salt Lake County via the PRC. With such a capacity increase, the enclosed canal would continue to have a capacity of 550 cfs at the Murdock Diversion, increasing to 630 cfs at approximately 800 North to accommodate water from the ULS pipeline, and from that point, tapering down to 585 cfs at the northern terminus.
