Department of the Interior, Office of the Assistant Secretary—Water and Science.




The Central Utah Water Conservancy District (CUWCD) and the U.S. Department of the Interior (Interior), as joint lead agencies, are proposing to administratively convert Central Utah Project (CUP) Bonneville Unit water delivered under Development Block Notice No. 1A and currently dedicated to the Heber Sub-Area from irrigation to municipal and industrial (M&I) use. The conversion would include up to 12,100 acre-feet of irrigation water in Wasatch County that is currently intended to provide supplemental irrigation water to commercially viable agricultural tracts that have been deemed irrigable under Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) law. The irrigation water would be converted incrementally to M&I use, when requested by petitioners and contract holders, over a period of up to 25 years.
