Project Description

The United States Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), with American Fork City as the project sponsor and Lehi City and Pleasant Grove City as project co-sponsors, is proposing to fund through the Watershed Protection and Flood Prevention Act (Public Law [PL] 83-566) improvements within the American Fork Watershed in Utah County, Utah.

NEPA Analysis
