IRON COUNTY – The Central Iron County Water Conservancy District Board of Directors will have its first meeting with its three new board members this week and a Capital Facilities Plan for the Lake Powell Pipeline project will be presented at the meeting.

The meeting will be Thursday at 6:30 p.m. in the Cedar City Library in the Park.

The Lake Powell Pipeline CFP includes cost estimates and those numbers will be important as Iron County communities that draw from the Cedar Valley Aquifer have some big decisions to make in the near future.

The new board members include Cedar City Councilor Steve Wood, Enoch Mayor Bob Rasmussen and Kanarraville Mayor Keith Williams. They will be sworn in at Thursday’s meeting. The board changes came because of the county commission’s desire to have more elected officials on the board.

CICWCD General Manager Scott Wilson said though it has seemed that the Lake Powell Pipeline project has moved slowly to this point, many studies and reports have been prepared. Now, the information has been collected and will be given to the cities and county so decisions can be made.

It is important that the region take action to get more water, as there is currently more being withdrawn from the aquifer than is put back in each year, he said.

“I hope that the community can appreciate how challenging this water situation is,” Wilson said.
