The Lost Canyon Project is a 7,000 acre foot water supply project for the Basin which was started in 2002 and completed in 2004. This project represents western Summit County's first importation project - meaning all water is brought into the basin from outside (Weber River in Eastern Summit County), rather than taking the sparse water resources in the Snyderville Basin area. Mountain Regional Water District and Park City share capacity in this project.
