SANTA CLARA, Utah (AP) -- Southern Utah officials dedicated a 17-mile pipeline to replace open ditches along the Santa Clara River.

The 6(M) million dollar pipeline will be able to move more water from Gunlock Reservoir to the Ivins Reservoir near St. George.

State and federal funding built the pipeline, and construction began last January.

The Santa Clara River flows out of the mountains of the Dixie National Forest. It meets up with the Virgin River in St. George.
