The Utah Division of Water Resources (DWRe) published the state’s 2016 and 2017 water use numbers to Utah’s Open Water Data portal, a public tool designed to increase accessibility and transparency of water use in Utah. The portal can be accessed at https://Water.Utah.Gov/OpenData
June 18, 2020 – The Utah Division of Water Resources (DWRe) and UTA have terminated their partnership to jointly acquire property in Box Elder County adjacent to Union Pacific’s existing rail corridor. The partnership was established in December 2018 and was initially beneficial because the division lacked property acquisition experience. The partnership eventually became cumbersome and both parties are moving forward independently.
DWRe is currently looking to acquire property from willing sellers to preserve a corridor for future pipeline alignment options. Construction is not anticipated for about 30 years and is subject to an environmental review under the National Environmental Policy Act.
The Division and UTA will continue to partner on a surveying contract, which is included in the original scope of work. A contracted right-of-way agent is working on behalf of DWRe.
