State Dam Loan/Grant Funding Program  

Utah has a funding program to assist dam owners with repair, abandonment, or removal of dams.

The Utah Division of Water Resources administers a low interest loan program to assist water users in the state with water development and maintenance of water infrastructure. A grant program is also available that helps dam owners rehabilitate existing high hazard dams to meet current safety standards.
