South Fields

Public Information Meeting

September 20, 2017

The Central Utah Water Conservancy District (District), the United States Department of the Interior, Central Utah Project Completion Act Office (CUPCA Office), and the Utah Reclamation Mitigation and Conservation Commission (Mitigation Commission), as Joint Lead Agencies (JLAs), are proposing to realign the South Fields Reach, of the Spanish Fork - Santaquin Pipeline (see alternatives map), through an unincorporated area of Utah County between the cities of Spanish Fork and Salem. The realignment of the South Fields Reach is being considered to avoid areas of high groundwater, narrow roadways, and to minimize community disruptions. The overall alignment and proposed location of the realignment alternatives are found on the alternatives map.

The JLAs are holding a public Open House to present the proposed realignment alternatives of the South Fields Reach to the public and to obtain comments to determine the potential environmental impact issues or concerns that would need to be addressed. The scoping process will assist in the determination of the range of alternatives to be considered. Only the realignment location for construction of the South Fields Reach pipeline is being considered. The water flowing through the pipeline and deliveries remain unchanged from the 2004 Definite Plan Report and other planning efforts.

The Open House will be held Wednesday September 20th from 6-7:30 p.m. at Foothills Elementary School in Salem (412 South 810 East). Representatives from the JLAs will be available to provide and discuss information on the South Fields Reach and for other reaches of the Spanish Fork—Santaquin Pipeline.

Comments can be submitted through the provided comment form.
