After undergoing a highly scrutinized and collaborative process to obtain and fully utilize our water rights, we gained approval through the State Engineer by meeting and complying with – and continuing to meet and comply with – specific, required mitigation measures and conditions. These measures involved developing a plan that utilized the existing 400 acres/foot of water already owned by Powder Mountain. We consistently meet all monitoring and reporting requirements associated with approval.
Sustainable-use parameters including prohibitions on permanent irrigation on the mountain have been implemented. We have also continuously met and collaborated with all interested parties and stakeholders relative to the water constraints associated with the Ogden Valley, and Powder Mountain’s plan relative to the sustainable use of our water resources.
