Utah water projects get a boost from congressional infrastructure bill
A critical Utah water project will get millions from the congressional infrastructure spending bill. Sen. Mitt Romney, R-UT, worked on the bipartisan legislation and received thanks Friday afternoon in southern Utah County from local officials and water managers. They met in Spanish Fork and toured a construction site for a portion of the Central Utah Project — a decades-long project that pipes Colorado River water to the Wasatch Front. It’s getting a $50 million boost, but was almost left out of the final bill, according to Romney.
