FY 2016 Appropriation

The West Desert Operations program funds the maintenance on the West Desert pumping plant, as required by UCA 73-23-3. The pumps are part of a $60 million Great Salt Lake flood control project begun in 1986. The pumps can lower the peak level of the lake about one foot per year. The division is maintaining the pumping facility through contracts with consultants and contractors, and regular inspection by agency staff, so they will be ready for operation if needed.
