Central Utah Project Ultimate Phase: Inventory of Available Data
The plan for the Central Utah project involves a diversion of water from streams in the Uinta Basin in the Upper Colorado River Basin to the closed Bonneville Basin in Central Utah and other associated water resource developments in both basins. Construction of the initial phase of the project was authorized by the Colorado River Storage Project Act of April 11, 1956 (70 Stat. 105).
The ultimate phase will expand on the initial phase development. Its purpose will be to increase the transbasin diversion to the Bonneville Basin and to provide water for replacement and additional use in the Uinta Basin. Water for the Uinta Basin will be provided by developments on streams originating in the basin and from the Green River either by pumping or by gravity flow through a tunnel heading at the existing Flaming Gorge Reservoir. This report has been prepared as a means of bringing together all of the available data that may be useful in outlining and conducting an orderly investigation of the ultimate phase as a whole.
