Economy

Intermountain Power Project (IPP)

One of the main sources of income for Delta is a power plant called Intermountain Power Agency, Intermountain Power Project or I.P.P. It is also referred to as Intermountain Power Service Corporation or I.P.S.C. This coal-powered power plant supplies power for much of Los Angeles county in California. The plant was originally designed for 4 units, but only 2 have been built. Each unit produces 900 megawatts of electricity.

Brush Wellman

Brush Wellman is a mine and refining plant located at one of the few sources of concentrated beryllium in the world. The plant is a mill and finishing facility for beryllium, a high-strength, lightweight metal used in military, aerospace, and medical industries. The ore for the plant comes from Brush Wellman's mine, located in the Topaz-Spor Mountains, 50 miles west, which is North America's only developed source for the metal. The facility is located here due to the remoteness of the area, as beryllium dust is highly toxic, and the proximity of a large source of power: the Intermountain Power Project.

Graymont Lime

Graymont Lime has a plant in the Cricket Mountains, about 35 miles southwest of Delta. It is one of the 10 largest lime plants in the United States. It was previously owned by Continental Lime which was purchased by Graymont Lime. For more information, see Graymont's website.

Alfalfa

Alfalfa hay is the main crop of the Delta area. Because of Delta's dry climate, the farmers are able to control the alfalfa hay's moisture when it is baled. This is very important to prohibit mold growth.

Dairy

Delta is home to many dairy farmers who may ship the milk out of the county, or may ship it to the local cheese factory (Red Rock Specialty Cheese).

Science

Cosmic Ray Center

Delta is home to the Lon and Mary Watson Cosmic Ray Center, the main staging area for the Telescope Array experiment.

Fossils & Minerals

A great attraction of Millard County's economy is the digging of fossils. Trilobite fossils are relatively common in the region west of Delta (part of the Wheeler Shale) and U-dig fossils is a local company that allows visitors to dig their own fossils for a small fee.

Near Delta is a mountain called Topaz Mountain which derives its name from the Topaz that is abundant in the area. Other minerals and rocks that are prevalent near Delta include Obsidian, Opal, and geode.

History

Topaz Relocation Camp

After the attack on Pearl Harbor, many Japanese-Americans were gathered up and placed in concentration camps with the intention of protecting military installations from espionage. One of these camps was located near Delta. For more information see Topaz War Relocation Center.

Great Basin Museum

A history of the area is kept and displayed at The Great Basin Museum. For more information, see Great Basin Museum

Gunnison Massacre Site

John Williams Gunnison was leading a federal surveying team near the Seveir Lake. He was ambushed by the Pahvant Indians and killed.

Entertainment

Snow Goose Festival

The Snow goose Festival occurs every winter as the geese migrating through Delta stop at Gunnison Bend Reservoir. For more information on the Snow Goose Festival, see http://www.deltagoosefestival.info/

Demolition Derby

Each 4th of July the Hinckley Lions Club sponsors a demolition derby at the Millard County Fairgrounds. The derby attracts an extraordinarily large crowd in excess of 3,000 people. It is one of the largest derbies in the United States with up to eleven rounds of competition including pickup trucks, figure 8 compact car competition, powder puff, a championship round and a wipe out round. Following the derby, there is a fireworks display sponsored by Delta City.
