 01/29/2009  Hydrology of Northern Utah Valley, Utah County, 1975 - 2005. USGS Co - Op Report released . The ground-water resources of northern Utah Valley, Utah, were assessed during 2003-05 to describe and quantify components of the hydrologic system, determine a hydrologic budget for the basin-fill aquifer, and evaluate changes to the system relative to previous studies. Sources of water to the basin-fill aquifers were estimated to average 153,000 (+/- 31,500) acre-feet annually during 1975-2004 with subsurface inflow and infiltration of streamflow being the predominant sources. Ground-water discharge from the basin-fill aquifers during 1975-2004 was estimated to average 166,700 (+/- 25,900) acre-feet/year where discharge to wells for consumptive use and discharge to waterways, drains, ditches, and springs were the principal sources. Water levels in 110 wells covering all aquifers droped an average of 22 feet and well water age ranged from 2 to 50 years. MCL

 09/14/2006  The United States Congressional Budget Office has released the report How Federal Policies Affect the Allocation of Water. The Utah Division of Water Rights does not endorse the views set forth in the report. A reference is provided here for public information and to stimulate dialog on the subject. 


 03/01/2006  During February 2006 the Division modified itís data structure and presentation of water right uses. Notable in the process is a centeralized ability to group all water rights which share a use and assign a sole supply to each right for the use. This structural change corrects a long standing shortcoming in the automated records system which allowed "rights in common" and now called supplemental rights to be described on each water right independently resulting in redundant data entry and inconsistencies. All of the existing data was processed into the new system. In some cases the processing was unable to detect inconsistencies and has produced redundant conflicting records. The Division is currently reviewing rights with multiple supplemental groups in an effort to correct this issue. For the time being we are providing an alternative view from the old uses listing for comparision. You access the alternative view from the pulldown menu at the top of each water right.
