Makes me sick to see something that says "Provo river excess flows" on one of the pipe charts. Want to see the excess flows in the river ... I probably don't understand the chart. Question

I saw this section at the top labeled "WATER RELEASES TO SUPPLEMENT STREAM FLOW" which shows that flow is actually being added to the Provo River. According to this site http://www.provo.org/mayorcurtis.pipelineinfo.html about ULS it states, "The project will not supply water to Provo users, but it will supplement flows in the Provo River, which should help facilitate fishing and other recreational uses of the river." The map on pg 18 of the brochure shows that the pipe will meet the Provo near the Upper Provo City Run put-in. That sounds like good news to me. Plus the pipe will add a supplemental peak flow of 125 cfs to Hobble Creek just below the bottom of Hobble Creek Canyon to supplement June Sucker recovery, (see pp 14 & 21). ULS will add 8,000 acre feet of water to Hobble Creek and 16,000 to the Provo River (p 14). This is due to be completed by mid 2011 (p 31). However, the ULS will cost hundreds of millions to build and maintain in order to facilitate overcrowding, crime, and pollution along the Wasatch Front. I would much rather see much of that money go toward water conservation incentives, removal of the invasive tamarisks in eastern Utah, etc. Same for the millions we spend on highway expansion when we should use most of that money for mass transit.

6th water

Post by npackham on Fri 07 Jan 2011, 1:02 pm

I can't tell, but is that picture of the proposed power facility at 6th water going to replace what we know as 6th water?

Nevermind, I think i found the answer which I believe is 'no'
A 45 MW generator would be constructed immediately before the crossing of Sixth Water

Creek at the lower end of the Sixth Water Aqueduct
