Alpine Aqueduct Reach 1 Replacement and Resiliency Project
The Central Utah Water Conservancy District (District) and the U.S. Department of the Interior (Interior), as Joint Lead Agencies, have prepared a Draft Environmental Assessment (Draft EA) that evaluates the realignment of a 1.4-mile segment (Reach 1) of the Alpine Aqueduct at the mouth of Provo Canyon in Orem. The Alpine Aqueduct Reach 1, through a connection with the Jordan Aqueduct, delivers water to approximately half of Utah's population, including Orem and Provo.
The Draft EA provides an evaluation of improvements to protect this critical pipeline from landslides and earthquakes and to continue to provide reliable service to Utahns well into the future.
The Joint Agencies hosted two public meetings throughout the environmental process.
