SUBJECT: Utah Reclamation Mitigation
and Conservation Commission Meeting
Salt Lake City, UT - The Utah Reclamation Mitigation and Conservation Commission will hold its next public meeting on Tuesday, October 22 at 10:30 AM in the Commission office conference room at 230 South 500 East, Suite 230.
Four agreements with the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources will be proposed for Commission consideration. The Commission would provide funding through the agreements to the Division for its continued support in establishing the Utah Lake Wetland Preserve and the Provo River Delta Restoration project in Utah County, and for stewardship of mitigation lands, including those along the middle Provo River in Heber Valley, Utah.
The Mitigation Commission is an independent Federal
agency created by the Central Utah Project Completion
Act of 1992. The Commission is responsible for planning,
funding, and implementing projects that benefit fish,
wildlife, and related recreation resources in order
to offset impacts caused by the Central Utah Project,
and other Federal water reclamation projects in Utah.
The Commission meets publicly to consider and act
on agreements to carry out mitigation projects with
various partners, including State and Federal natural
resource agencies and non-profit groups.
