Utah Lake has roughly 75 miles of shoreline, which serves as a gateway for water sports, recreation, and the development of wetlands.
Ten years ago, the total population of the June Sucker fish (found only in Utah Lake) was fewer than 1,000.
If there’s one thing Utah Lake isn’t known for, it’s clear blue water. But there’s no reason it can’t be translucent again, preservationists say. Which is why local officials are working hard to restore it.
