Provo River Delta - A River Runs To It

Connecting The Provo River with a restored delta and Utah Lake

Provo City Councilors Rachel Whipple, Shannon Ellsworth, and George Handley attended the "River Runs to It" event on Thursday, March 2, 2023, held just west of the Lakeshore Bridge trailhead in Provo.

The Provo River Delta Restoration Project broke ground in June of 2020 and on Thursday they reached the major milestone of the river running into the channels and ponds constructed over the past three years -- connecting the Provo River with a restored delta and Utah Lake.

While this connection is a landmark accomplishment, work will continue to complete construction of numerous recreational amenities in the delta area and project features for maintaining water elevation and quality in the existing Provo River channel. Public access to the project area will remain CLOSED until project completion and opening in 2024.
