Scope and Content
The Utah Water and Power Board was established in 1947 and tasked with the responsibility of promoting the orderly and timely planning, conservation, development, utilization, and protection of Utah's water resources. The board was responsible for managing water resources in the state of Utah, as well as working with other state governments in the management of inter-state water sharing issues. The record series terminates at the same time the Utah Water and Power Board was replaced by the Utah Board of Water Resources (a regulatory board currently administered by the Utah Division of Water Resources). The correspondence in this series discusses the Upper Colorado River storage project and Echo Park dam proposal. Much of the correspondence is between George Clyde, Director of the Water and Power Board and Frederick Champ, President of Cache Valley Banking Company.
