The company consists of 10 canal companies that own water rights in the Logan River. Traditionally, the majority of the water was delivered to agricultural users, but as growth has occurred, many of the agricultural areas have developed and the water is no longer being used to irrigate the developed land.
The purpose of this website is to educate the public about the Crockett Avenue Pressurized Irrigation Project by providing information about the process the company and stakeholders have undertaken to evaluate the viability of the project and inform the public of ongoing advances as the project develops.
Although Crockett operates independently from local municipalities, its service area includes land within Logan City, North Logan City, Hyde Park City, and Cache County.
Crockett and the three cities impacted by Crockett’s operations are facing immediate water-related challenges. Decisions made today about local water management impact the future success and growth potential of Cache Valley.

After identifying the water-related challenges and recognizing the need to begin addressing them now, Crockett moved forward with finding a solution. Crockett hired a team of engineering and financial consultants to perform a feasibility analysis of three alternatives and evaluate which alternative would adequately address the identified challenges, provide the greatest long-term benefits to all stakeholders, and be financially viable.
The result of the conducted alternative analysis and evaluation recommended that constructing a complete PI system throughout the Crockett service area would address the identified water-related challenges, provide significant benefits, and be financially viable.

In 2016, Crockett hired a team of consultant engineers to evaluate the installation of a pressurized irrigation system within the Crockett Service Area. After more than two years of coordination with stakeholders including Crockett, Logan City, North Logan City, Hyde Park City, and the Cache Water District, the Crockett Pressurized Irrigation Master Plan was completed in Spring of 2019.
During the creation of the Crockett Pressurized Irrigation Master Plan, Crockett’s future needs were identified through technical analysis, stakeholder coordination, and on-site field work.
Crockett is currently working to identify funding through a combination of grants and cost-share agreements to begin planning and preparing an environmental document.
Once funding has been secured, Crockett will continue to plan for and study a complete PI System.
A robust and thorough environmental study must occur before a large construction project can begin. The purpose of the study is to evaluate whether the proposed action or other alternatives would cause significant environmental effects. Environmental studies of this size normally take between one and two years to complete.
The design phase of a project consists of continued stakeholder involvement; coordination with property owners, water right owners and shareholders; and final engineering design.
Due to the size of the proposed project, construction would likely be phased and could take up to five years to complete.
After construction, the new system would need to be maintained and operated. At this point in the process, it hasn’t been decided how or which entity would care for this system long term.
