WIND AND WAVES

By increasing lake depth, the Utah Lake Restoration Project will be able to reduce the amount of force wave action exerts on the lake bottom. This will improve water clarity; reestablish native plants, fish, and wildlife; and remove nutrients that feed toxic algal blooms.

CREATING SAFE ZONES

Lake Restoration Solutions’ engineering team’s design for island creation across the lake will create safe zones with little wind and wave action during high-wind events, improving the recreational experience for everyone.

REDUCING SUSPENDED SEDIMENT

Modeling by specialists at our engineering consultant, Geosyntec, shows that deeper water will result in less disturbance of the lake bottom by waves. This will greatly reduce the amount of sediment suspended in the water, improving water quality. It will also allow submerged-aquatic vegetation to grow which helps further stabilize the lakebed,  and provides habitat for fish.

PROTECTING THE LAKE BOTTOM

Reducing wave energy on the lakebed by increasing depth through dredging will  minimize the amount of sediment resuspension.

500% REDUCTION IN WAVE FORCE

Reducing wind and wave action and lake bottom disruption with strategic dredging and island creation will transform Utah Lake—current modeling shows it could ultimately reduce wave force on the lake bottom by 500% during a 26 mile-per-hour wind event.

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.
