PROVO, Utah (AP) -- The final draft of a master plan to revitalize Utah Lake is done and ready for a review at the state level.
Larry Ellertson, vice chairman of the Utah Lake Commission, says the plan to restore Utah's largest natural freshwater lake and expand recreational opportunities has to go through a 45-day review.
The Utah Lake Commission voted last week to accept the master plan, which has been under development for the past year.
The plan proposes developing access to the lake for boating and fishing; creating a bicycle and hiking trail; eliminating invasive carp; and restoring native species, including the June sucker.
The commission will hold a public hearing on the master plan on March 26 in Provo. The state will accept public comments for 45 days."
