Utah Agriculture Overview
In the near future, Sanpete County intends to begin construction on a small dam and reservoir. Called the Narrows, this project will be located about two miles east of Fairview Canyon.
The Narrows has been discussed and promised to Sanpete County for nearly 80 years. When complete, it will provide a means of storing water that runs out of the mountains to our east for use as mid and late summer irrigation and culinary water.
