Ephraim will get $55k from watershed protection program

The City of Ephraim will receive $55,000 from a national program aimed at repairing damage done by natural disasters, and protecting against future ones. The money is part of $5 million the National Resource Conservation Service (a division under the U.S. Department of Agriculture) is investing in Utah through its Emergency Watershed Protection Program, which aids communities in recovering from or preventing disasters. Ephraim City’s portion of the grant is slated for work to repair and prevent erosion of a debris basin above the city. Sanpete Messenger
