Uinta National Forest officials are proposing a watershed restoration project in the Dry Canyon area about two miles east of Lindon. The proposal is to reclaim about 13 miles of user-created two-track roads and trails over about 330 acres of National Forest. Unauthorized off-highway vehicle use in the area is causing soil erosion and watershed concerns.

Activities proposed include reseeding the disturbed areas with native grasses and plants, creating berms and ditches that will help direct water from the most erosive areas, blocking the area with rocks and fences to restrict further destruction, and removing litter and debris.

“We know many citizens are bothered by the scars left from uncontrolled motorized use on the Wasatch Front foothills,” said Pam Gardner, Pleasant Grove District Ranger. “These tracks are not only unsightly, but are affecting water quality and the health of the land.”

The Forest Service is currently accepting comments regarding the proposed action. Information about the project, including a map of the area, can be found on the Uinta’s website at under “Projects & Plans.” Comments should be sent to Pam Gardner, Uinta National Forest, Pleasant Grove District Ranger, 390 N 100 E, Pleasant Grove, UT 84501; phone 801-342-5241; or deliver your comments, during normal business hours from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday, excluding federal holidays. Email comments may be sent to

The opportunity to comment ends 30 days following the date of publication of the legal notice for this project in the Provo Daily Herald.
Nothing to see here.
