Duchesne County Commissioners reaffirmed their position in support of the proposed Victory Pipeline. The pipeline, which is designed to transport water from the Starvation Reservoir water treatment plant across the county with a terminus in Roosevelt, is moving forward with the support of water districts who would use the new source of water.

"I am convinced that the county can not grow and develop without the pipeline in place," Commissioner Kent Peatross said.

Communities and water districts have now given ratified proposals to the Duchesne County Water Conservancy District describing their levels of participation in water delivery.

2013 will be a pivotal year for the proposed pipeline as $4 million in preapproved funds is set to expire in January of 2014. Without those funds, the pipeline would be in jeopardy according to DCWCD board members.

Watch for growing pains of the county described in the next Uintah Basin Standard.
