Employer Industries

  • Oil: In 1948 oil was found in the Uinta Basin but not developed until the early 1970s. Duchesne city is located in the area of vast oil and natural gas reserves spanning the northeast corner of Utah and extending into western Colorado. As prices for crude rise, oil industry jobs open up in the town. Duchesne has had a long history of providing housing for oil field workers, with rentals in high demand during times of energy exploration and production.
  • Water: Duchesne has benefited from the water resources of the Duchesne and Strawberry rivers that flow close to the town. The Central Utah Project was active in the area for 20 years and provided good jobs from 1967 to 1987. A recent expansion to the water treatment plant northwest of town will start supplying culinary water to the community of Roosevelt some 30 miles away.
  • Manufacturing: Duchesne is home to a number of heavy machine and steel manufacturers. A wide variety of products and parts are manufactured in town.
  • Agriculture: Agriculture has always been a mainstay for many Duchesne residents and surrounding communities. The abundant water resources in the area provide irrigation for large hayfields on ranches surrounding the town. The vast amount of federally owned and leased lands have given cattle ranchers and sheep ranchers good grazing for over 120 years in the area.
  • Tourism: Duchesne has always been rich in its rugged beauty and tourism. Thousands are drawn during and warmer months to enjoy boating on Starvation Reservoir, fishing on the Strawberry and Duchesne rivers, and camping in the High Uintas.
