description

Summary

Significance: As the first project built by the U.S. Reclamation Service in Utah, the Strawberry Valley Project had a major impact on the State. It represents the beginning of Federal assistance in water development, development on which the rest of the State's economy depends. The Project had a major impact on the way water is developed and distributed in Utah, by heralding the era of large storage dams and distribution systems. In addition, the application of the National Reclamation Act of 1902 eventually modified Utah's legal and institutional mechanisms for controlling water development.
