Anderson Junction Water Improvement Project

The Washington County Water Conservancy District (WCWCD) has submitted an Application to the St. George Field Office proposing to construct a reservoir, water pipeline and associated water collection facility on public land in Washington County, Utah. WCWCD’s project proposal includes the construction of a reservoir site approximately 115-acres in size near Anderson Junction, on the south side of I-15. A 17-mile pipeline would be located along the southern edge of I-15 beginning at the base of the Ash Creek Reservoir dam to the proposed Anderson Junction Reservoir. Water from existing diversions on tributaries to Ash Creek would also be delivered into the proposed pipeline and reservoir. The proposed Anderson Junction Reservoir would require a 145-acre area that would be used for the reservoir, dam, recreation area, and spillway. Water wells would be drilled down gradient (south) of the proposed Reservoir and recharge water would be collected and piped into Washington County’s culinary water system.

Information related to this proposed Project will be periodically updated until the Project is either approved and built or denied.
