Carbon Canyon Regional Park Lake Restoration

On July 14, 2014, preparation began to restore Carbon Canyon Regional Park’s 4-acre lake to its original condition. Currently, the lake has diminished water quality and reduced capacity preventing it from being stocked with fish to provide recreational fishing opportunities by park visitors.

The excavation of the lake involves manually draining the lake of its water to allow heavy equipment to remove the soil. A 6-foot temporary fence will be placed around the perimeter of the lake to secure the project and to ensure the public’s safety.
