Feasible measures of control of salinity in the Virgin River were proposed in a study that considered the water quality and quantity of the river before and after the Dixie Project and the Moapa Valley Pumping Project were completed. The Virgin River contributes approximately 3 percent of the total salt load to Lake Mead Reservoir, but increased use of the river flow will increase the concentration of TDS in the river and in Lake Mead. Water quality benefits and costs related to the control measures are discussed.
