The Utah Board of Water Resources has committed money for one Utah County water project and approved a feasibility study for another.

Work on the system, which will be designed for 6,000 connections, is expected to start this spring. Board funds will be used to buy down interest on a $7.9 million open market bond repayable over 25 years.The board approved a Division of Water Resources study for a proposed water storage project in Payson. The city wants to build a three million-gallon storage tank estimated to cost $750,000.
