Administrative History

The Central Utah Water Company (est. 1926) is a water company in Lynndyl, Utah.

In 1926 the Sevier River Land and Water Company in Lyndyll, Utah was reorganized as the Central Utah Water Company in an attempt to keep settlers in nearby McCornick from moving following several dry years. Settlers completely abandoned McCornick in 1929, but the company has remained active in Lyndyll since.

Administrative History

The Cedar Creek Tunnel Irrigation Company (1894-2002) was a water company in Emery County, Utah.

The Cedar Creek Tunnel Irrigation Company obtained water rights in 1894. The Utah business license expired on December 4, 2002. This is not to be confused with the fictitious company by the same name established in 2005.

Administrative History

On March 24, 1894, the Spring City Irrigation Company was incorporated in Sanpete County Utah.
