INTERSTATE STREAMS AND STATE AND FEDERAL RELATIONS Geography, history and national politics have a profound influence on water management in Utah. Drainage basins covering more than half the state are associated with interstate streams. The water resources of these areas are governed by state water law, as well as interstate compacts. In addition, over two-thirds of the lands of the state are owned and administered by the federal government and federal laws and regulations associated with these lands present unique problems to state water planners and administrators. Increased environmental awareness has generated federal legislation that significantly constrains the formulation and implementation of water-related activities. The Board, with the approval of the department executive director and the governor, designates a representative of the state of Utah in all interstate conferences and meetings between the state of Utah and one or more basin states held to enter into compacts to divide interstate waters or to discuss interstate streams issues. Eric Millis, the Division of Water Resources (Division) Director serves as Utah's Interstate Streams Commissioner, the governor's representative on Colorado River management issues and is Utah's representative on the Upper Colorado River Commission, and Bear River Commission. In addition the Director serves on the Western States Water Council, Colorado River Basin Salinity Control Forum and Advisory Council, and the Glen Canyon Adaptive Management Work Group. Because control of much of Utah's water resources is affected by actions of other states and federal agencies, active participation on selected interstate and state/federal bodies is essential to protect Utah's interests. Upper Colorado River Commission The states of the Upper Colorado River Basin share approximately six million acre-feet of the waters of the Colorado River. Of the allocation, 50,000 acre-feet of consumptive use is apportioned to Arizona; of the remainder, 51.75% is apportioned to Colorado, 11.25% to New Mexico, 14% to Wyoming, and 23% to Utah. Utah's annual entitlement is estimated to be 1.37 million acre-feet. The Upper Colorado River Commission was created by the Upper Colorado River Compact of 1948. The Commission has a federal chairman (appointed by the president) and one member from each of the four Upper Division States - Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming. Eric Millis is Utah's commissioner and Dallin Jensen serves as the alternate commissioner. In addition, the Board appointed the following advisers to the commission: Don Christiansen, general manager of the Central Utah Water Conservancy District; Kent Jones, State Engineer; Robert King, of the Division; Gawain Snow, general manager of the Uintah Water Conservancy District; and Norman Johnson, Assistant Attorney General.

Division of Water Resources - Page 6

Bear River Commission The Bear River Commission is created by a three-state compact between Idaho, Utah and Wyoming; comprised of a federal representative, appointed by the president, and three members from each of the states. Utah Code specifies that Utah's Interstate Streams Commissioner shall be the chairman of Utah's delegation to the Bear River Commission. In addition, a commissioner from the Bear River Basin (above Bear Lake) and a commissioner from the basin (below Bear Lake) are appointed by the Board with the consent of the Governor. An alternate for each of the two can also be appointed. By law, these four persons must be irrigators and live on irrigated farms located in the basin. The current Utah delegation to the Bear River Commission is composed of Eric Millis, chairman of the Utah delegation; Blair Francis, the Upper Bear River Basin commissioner; and Norman Weston, alternate. Both men live in Rich County. In the Lower Bear River Basin, Charles Holmgren of Box Elder County is the commissioner and Joseph Larsen of Cache County is the alternate. Kent Jones, State Engineer; Norman Johnson, Assistant Attorney General; and Todd Adams of the Division serve as advisers to the Utah commissioners. Western States Water Council The Western States Water Council was organized in June 1965 by the governors comprising the Western Governors Conference, with the stated purpose of accomplishing effective cooperation among the western states in planning for programs leading to integrated water resources development by state, federal and other agencies. Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wyoming are members of the council. Because the Western Governors Conference was disbanded and the Western Governors Association (WGA) has been created, the council now reports to the WGA. The principal function of the Council has been to foster areas of agreement, where the combined strength of western state water officials is able to influence actions of Congress and federal agencies on water policy. The Council has developed a high degree of prestige and is doing a creditable job representing the states and their governors on water matters. Each state may designate three individuals as Council members and additional alternate members. The appointments are made by the governor, and they serve at his pleasure. Utah's members are currently Norman Johnson (Legal Committee), Eric Millis (Executive Committee), and Walt Baker (Water Quality Committee). Colorado River Basin Salinity Control Forum and Advisory Council The salinity concentrations of the waters of the Colorado River have been of major concern to the seven Colorado River Basin States (Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, California, Arizona and Nevada). The salt content of the water has an economic impact on agricultural and

Division of Water Resources - Page 7

municipal and industrial uses in the Basin. The Salinity Control Forum was created in 1972 with the concurrence of the Governor and the water development and water quality agencies of the seven states. Although it has no specific legislative mandate, the forum has been very successful as a means of obtaining comity and strong congressional support for salinity control projects. It is important to the proper function of the Forum that members are professionals from the water development and water quality agencies of state government. John Whitehead (Division of Water Quality), Gawain Snow (Uintah Water Conservancy District), and Eric Millis are Utah's members to the Forum. In 1974 Congress passed the Colorado River Salinity Control Project Act, which authorizes funding for salinity control projects. The act also provides for the appointment of three members to an advisory council by each governor of the seven Colorado River basin states. The Council is responsible for advising the Secretary of Interior, the Secretary of Agriculture and the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency on salinity matters. The Council meets annually with representatives of Interior and Agriculture departments and the Environmental Protection Agency. Dallin Jensen, John Whitehead, and Eric Millis serve on this council at the pleasure of the governor. Governor's Representative on Colorado River Management Following the 1983 flooding on the Colorado River, the Secretary of the Interior invited each of the seven governors to name a personal representative to negotiate management policies on operations of the reservoir system on the river. Meetings are held frequently between the seven representatives and staff of the Bureau of Reclamation to discuss Colorado Basin issues. Dennis Strong is the Governor's representative. Glen Canyon Adaptive Management Work Group Created by the Grand Canyon Protection Act of 1992, the Glen Canyon Adaptive Management Program includes a federal advisory committee to make recommendations to the Secretary of the Interior on the operations of Glen Canyon Dam to enhance and protect the downstream environment in the Grand Canyon, while also maintaining the purposes for which Glen Canyon Dam was built. Eric Millis is Utahs representative on the Federal Advisory Committee and Robert King of the Division serves as an alternate on the committee as well as on the technical committee. They help protect Utahs interest in its Colorado River water supply, recreation on Lake Powell, environmental enhancement, and power generation capacity at Glen Canyon Dam.

STATE WATER PLANNING The Division is responsible to plan for and encourage the use of the state's water resources. To do that, the Division has established the following planning objectives: Help local, state and federal agencies coordinate water resources planning and development activities. Maintain programs with federal and state agencies to obtain streamflow, climatological, SNOTEL, water quality data, water-related land use and municipal and industrial water use data. Develop and maintain river basin models for state planning purposes and operational models for specific project feasibility and development studies. Study technologies and methods that will help meet future water resource needs. Continue to formulate and maintain both a State Water Plan and basin plans that: (1) identify and quantify existing and projected municipal, industrial, agricultural and environmental water use; (2) identifies and quantifies water supply sources; and (3) identifies how much additional water will be needed and makes recommendations for meeting future needs; (4) identifies and studies water-related topics and issues that must be considered in meeting future water needs. River Basin Studies Since completion of the Utah State Water Plan in 1990, the Division has completed 11 detailed basin plans covering the entire state. The plans describe water resource development opportunities and problems in the basins, identify options, and make recommendations for future actions. They also help coordinate the activities of local, state and federal water agencies within the river basins. The Division published an updated statewide plan in 2001 entitled Utahs Water Resources: Planning for the Future. Updates of the 11 previously published basin plans are done on an as-needed basis. The Bear, Weber, and Jordan River Plans have been updated and work is being done to update the Utah Lake and Uintah basin plans. Resource Inventories, Computer Modeling and Special Studies The Division obtains needed data and provides technical modeling and hydrologic analysis for state water planning, water development projects, and coordination with federal and state agencies. Some of the current activities/studies by the planning branch include participation in the Quality Growth Efficiency Tools planning process; statewide summaries of water-related land use and municipal and industrial water use; residential per capita water use; and technical models for the Great Salt Lake, Uinta River operation, Lake Fork River, and Ashley/Brush Creeks simulation. Simulation models of the Bear, Weber, and Virgin rivers are continually updated and used by the Division and managers for water planning.

Division of Water Resources - Page 9

The Division published water-related land use inventories for two basins and three special study reports: 2010 Statewide Landuse Inventory, Municipal and Industrial Water Supply and Use Study Summary 2010, and Detecting Leaks in Utahs Municipal Water Systems, plus the Uintah Basin and West Desert Basin land use inventory summaries. It also prepared a final review draft of the Utah Lake Basin State Water Plan. Conservation and Education The Water Conservation and Education programs are focused on activities and programs to help Utahns reduce the per capita municipal and industrial water use of Utah residents. The division is committed to expand efforts in water conservation and education by: a. b. c. Providing materials and teacher training in public schools; sponsoring the Utah Waters Van program and the Water Education Poster Contest and Banquet. Be the lead agency for the Governors Water Conservation Team Working with local water agencies to develop and implement water conservation programs, including education of the general public as to how to use Utahs water wisely; Promoting modification of laws, ordinances and regulations to promote efficient water use.

d.

The Division acted as Lead on the Governors Utahs Water Future meetings that were held throughout the state. This included determining eight locations to cover population areas and presenting overviews of six areas of focus, including water law, environment and recreation, water supply, future water needs, the cost of funding future projects, and the future of agriculture. Through this public forum input from local residents was taken, and over 800 responses were received. This process will continue through the next year through the Envision Utah process. Cloud Seeding Cloud seeding has long been recognized by water professionals as a feasible means to augment the natural water supply. Conditions are especially favorable in Utah where topography, climate and water storage reservoirs make winter snowpack enhancement cost-effective. Utah enacted weather modification legislation in 1973, and an operational cloud seeding program was funded in 1976. The field program, which usually extends from November to April, is funded jointly by the state and local water interests. Statistical analysis of the cloud seeding program since its beginning shows an average increase in precipitation of 8% to 20% in seeded areas at a cost of about $1.70 per acre-foot for the additional water.

WATER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS In 1909 the Utah State Legislature approved an "Act to Provide for a Utah State Conservation Commission" to prevent waste of the natural resources in Utah. On March 17, 1921 the Legislature created the Utah Water Storage Commission. Its principal powers and duties were "to make investigations, looking to a full and proper development and utilization of the state's water supply." That organization continued until March 31, 1941, when the Legislature abolished the Commission and gave its powers and duties to a newly-created Publicity and Industrial Development Department. The Utah Water and Power Board was created in 1947. At the same time, the Legislature implemented a Revolving Construction Fund to provide financial assistance for the construction of water development and conservation projects. This began the legacy of the states participation in a self-help water development cooperative effort that continues to function today. With the creation of the Department of Natural Resources in 1967, the Legislature established the Board of Water Resources (to supersede the Water and Power Board) and the Division of Water Resources to administer the state's responsibilities in water resource matters and act as technical advisor to the Board and Governor. The energy crisis of the 1970s brought rapid growth to many Utah cities. To help local leaders upgrade their culinary water systems, the 1974 Legislature created the Cities Water Loan Fund. Still faced with the need to develop additional water resources and the federal government's withering participation in funding water projects, the 1978 Legislature created a Conservation and Development Fund to help develop large projects. In 1990 the Dam Safety Act was passed and the Board again was given a new funding responsibility. Dam safety is included in the Revolving Construction Fund and the Board is authorized to provide grants to bring high hazard dams up to current dam safety standards. Grants are provided only when the legislature appropriates money for dam safety grants. The State Engineer classifies all dams into one of three categories: high, moderate, or low hazard. The Board, in concert with the State Engineer, ranks high hazard dams based on their potential to cause loss of life and/or property damage. Grants of at least 80% are given based on the ranking priority and money appropriated. Beginning in 1947 with the creation of the Water and Power Board, and continuing with the Board of Water Resources, both technical and financial assistance has been provided to public and private entities to more effectively utilize the states water resources. Since initiation of that policy, the state legislature has appropriated approximately $339 million for water development. Because the Board requires financial assistance be repaid (hence the term revolving loan program is often used), the Board has provided over $743 million through its Revolving Construction, Cities Water Loan, and Conservation and Development Funds, with a ratio of about $2.84 in construction for each dollar provided by the Board. Through its Dam Safety Funding Program the Board has provided grants totaling nearly $62 million and loans totaling nearly $3 million to bring 37 high hazard dams up to current dam safety standards. Funding programs are administered through the Division under the direction of the eight-member Board. The Board and Division are charged with planning for full utilization of the water and power resources of the state. During the past 67 years the Board and Division have been involved in the planning, design, construction, and financing of 1,406 water projects.

DAM SAFETY CONSTRUCTION GRANTS


The Board has given nearly $60 million for dam safety construction grants and nearly $3 million in loans from the Boards Revolving Construction Fund. The Board has adopted guidelines for making grants to dam owners whose dams require upgrades as a result of the 1990 Dam Safety Act. The Board will provide at least 80% of the cost of upgrades for dam owners that are political subdivisions of the state, water user associations, or nonprofit water companies. Following is a list of the dams that: 1) have been upgraded and now meet state requirements; 2) are currently being upgraded; or 3) are scheduled for upgrading within the next two years. Not all were done with State funds.
