Expansion Site Selected

After comprehensive evaluation of potential site locations, it is determined that the West Beach North site would maximize benefits to Bear Lake recreators and minimize environmental impacts.

How did the project team arrive at the decision for this site?

Various potential sites on the lake were considered. These sites were narrowed to four for in-depth comprehensive evaluation. The project team weighed the challenges, opportunities, and impacts associated with each site. The West Beach North site was chosen by the Utah Department of Natural Resources and the Utah Division of Facilities Construction and Management due to thje availability of utility connections and access points, established operations and maintenance facilities, proximity to local lodging, cost, and low comparative environmental impact. The matrix of benefits and challenges of the evaluated sites is provided below, and is available on the project website.
