Project abstract: Carbon County has submitted an easement application for proposed flood control structures within Section 13, T14S, R9E, and Sections 18 & 19, Township 14S, R10E, SLB&M, in Carbon County immediately adjacent to Price. Above-average flooding in September 2016 caused moderate to severe damage to stream banks, irrigation structures, and homes in the Westwood Subdivision. Carbon County has secured assistance from the Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) under the Emergency Watershed Protection program to construct a series of rock and earthen berms to help mitigate future flooding.

Three berms will be placed in series in a large drainage. They will be 5-6 feet tall and 5 feet wide at the top of the berm, with a geo-fabric installed between the existing ground and D50=30" rock. From west to east, the three berms will be approximately 1,000 feet, 400 feet, and 320 feet long respectively. Another single berm of similar design and dimensions would be installed in a smaller drainage. This single berm will be approximately 1250 feet long. The proposed easement would contain approximately 155.57 acres. The requested term of the easement is 30 years.
How is the local government(s) likely to be impacted? Minimal impact.
Possible significant impacts likely to occur: Improved flood control.
