Humans damaged it.
Let’s fix it.

We’re taking on the biggest water restoration project in Utah’s history to correct 150 years of degradation of Utah Lake—making it a clean, healthy body of water once again. Our long-term, sustainable solutions will also increase water storage capacity, mitigate drought effects, and restore habitats for native plants and animals.

BIG PLANS. BIG VISION. BIG IMPACT.

Utah Lake needs help. Evaporation, invasive species, wastewater, and other factors are contributing to an unhealthy lake and putting native plants and wildlife in danger. It’s time for us to do more.

Read on to learn about our comprehensive, innovative plans to restore Utah Lake and its ecosystem through solutions that are based on sound science.

WATER CONSERVATION

By reducing surface area of the lake and removing invasive species, we can reduce water loss to save billions of gallons of water annually.

WATER QUALITY IMPROVEMENT

Removing nutrient loaded sediments will help reestablish native plants and reduce frequent and harmful algal blooms.

ECOSYSTEM RESTORATION

Improving water quality, restoring native vegetation, and adding hundreds of miles of shoreline will greatly benefit fish and wildlife.

It’s safe to say that Utah Lake has not fared well in the past. We’re going to change that for the better. We can, and must, restore Utah Lake for future generations. It’s a big task, but one that’s worth the effort.

— RYAN BENSON, CEO LAKE RESTORATION SOLUTIONS

DREDGING

Dredging the lakebed will remove harmful nutrients while deepening the lake to improve water quality, restore native plants, and increase storage capacity.

ISLAND CREATION

Islands will be formed from dredged material to improve circulation, control wave action, and create additional wildlife habitat and land for communities.

RECREATION

Easier lake access and clean, safe water will make Utah Lake a beautiful place for surrounding communities and visitors to use and enjoy.

DRIVEN BY SCIENCE.
POWERED BY PASSION.

We’re working with world-class scientists and engineers to save Utah Lake after more than 150 years of degradation. Our plans are informed by proven technology and data to ensure a responsible, sustainable path forward for the lake and surrounding area. Learn all about the partnerships, studies, and assessments that are driving this project from concept to reality.
