Scope and Content

This series is comprised of a variety of records that record how the office of the Utah State Engineer was involved with numerous actions and responsibilities pertaining to the Colorado River. Records in this series roughly begin in 1922 with the passage of the Colorado River Compact, an inter-state agreement between the western Colorado River states that stipulated how water from the river would be allocated. Final ratification of the Colorado River Compact came with the Boulder Canyon Project Act of 1928, a legal action responsible for the construction of Hoover Dam and filling of Lake Mead. This is another 20th century moment in Colorado River history that is thoroughly documented by the records present in this series.

Records continue through the Upper Colorado River Basin Compact of 1948, which apportioned the Upper Basin allocations among Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona. The State Engineer was prominently involved in all work done on the state level concerning Utah's role as a member of the Upper Colorado River Commission.

Finally, records in this series trace the State Engineer's involvement with the Colorado River Storage Project of 1956, an action that led to the widespread development of dams and hydroelectric power production in the Upper Colorado River Basin throughout the late 1950's and 1960's.

Researchers accessing this series can expect to find general administrative files and reports from the State Engineers office pertaining to the Colorado River. This includes records created by the State Engineer as a participant in the Upper Colorado River Commission. Other record types in this series include publications, reports, brochures, maps, hydrological records, correspondence, commission meeting transcripts, commission meeting minutes, addresses to the commission, and other miscellaneous files related to the State Engineer's involvement on Colorado River issues.

Arrangement

Chronological by date.

Records in this series have a rough chronological order at the box level. Periodically there is also a rough alphabetical arrangement by subject, also at the box level. At the time processing was started each box had an assigned user box number, and the original order was preserved at both the box and folder level. However, there is no apparent overarching arrangement that unifies all boxes in this series.
