The Association has had a busy summer so far. The spring runoff came late and in a large, single swoosh. This caused flooding along both the Provo and Weber Rivers. The Association was able to divert and store a sufficient volume of water to easily fill Deer Creek Reservoir, which wasn’t a given prior to runoff season.
The water deliveries in the Provo Reservoir Canal (PRC) were quite heavy at the first of the irrigation season, but have reduced down to a small amount compared to normal deliveries. Even at these lower levels, the PRC requires the same diligence while operating and maintaining it. Construction along SR-92 has required some extra work and coordination to make everything operate smoothly.
There has been a requirement for additional coordination with neighboring jurisdictions because of the various construction projects near Provo River Project facilities. Such projects as the expansion of 4800 West, the construction of the Murdock Connector roadway in Highland, SR-92 reconstruction and the work on I-15 have all impacted Association activities. The Association’s own large project – the Provo Reservoir Canal Enclosure Project – will soon be underway in the fall. Residents and commuters in north Utah County will be able to follow the progress on the Association’s website and be apprised of any construction impacts to roadways and neighborhoods.
