The Central Utah Project Completion Act (CUPCA) authorized the Uinta
Basin Replacement Project (UBRP) in 2000. The purpose of UBRP is to achieve greater water conservation and increase
efficiency of beneficial uses of water within the Uinta Basin, in northeastern Utah. The Central Utah Water Conservancy
District completed the Project's water development features.
The Mitigation Commission was made responsible for mitigating effects of UBRP, which included stabilizing thirteen High Mountain Lakes in the High Uinta Wilderness Area.
