This week we are featuring “Feasibility of Accelerating Construction of the Central Utah Project,” a report issued in 1978 which discusses the multiple unit project developing water for irrigation and many other uses.
From the report’s abstract: “Objective: In April, 1977 the President’s statement on water projects recommended that a number of federal water development projects, including the Bonneville unit of the Central Utah Project, not be completed. The ensuing efforts of project supporters brought about a review of the projected costs, benefits, and other political, social and environmental factors and consequently, the current issue is not whether or not the project should be constructed. Rather, the objective of this report is to examine the following question: Given the fact that at least the 5 units of the CUP which have already been authorized will eventually be constructed, what is the most desirable rate of construction funding?”
This report comes to the Western Waters Digital Library from Utah State University’s Digital Commons.
