The purpose of the dam is primarily to provide a third yield of hay for livestock during the summer season in San Pete County, but there is an abundance of land there to simply range feed the livestock on state and federal lands instead of abusively cramming them into pastures and bringing in hay for them. I also did some math. Suppose this dam extended the growing season by a whole two months, that would average 45 cfs (90 cfs if the growing season was only extended by a month) being diverted to San Pete County throughout the duration. The dam would retain water during spring runoff and release it during late summer. It would significantly dewater the class IV creek run down Price Canyon as well, a stretch that I consider one of the better creek runs in Utah. Retaining 45-90 cfs would probably reduce the season on that run by 80% or more. Most years it probably won't even be runnable. On the otherhand, that water will be diverted into Cottonwood canyon and flow down into the town of Ephraim, so maybe after some pruning I could make another late season low volume steepcreeking run out of it, like on Sixthwater.
