The Washington County Water Conservancy District published a history book in 2017 entitled Ditches, Diversion and Dam Determination. It is a history of water development in Washington County, Utah that goes back to the early settlers of Washington County and takes a look at the struggles they endured to bring water to their homes, land and livestock. The book also presents a history of current-day water development projects beginning with the construction of the Quail Creek Reservoir. The last part of the book explains some of the future water projects in the planning stages that will continue to provide sufficient, high-quality water to our area.
The book consists of 372 pages of text and photos. The cost of the book is $50. It can be purchased at the district office at 533 E Waterworks Drive in St. George, Utah.
