Map: Wasatch Back reservoirs


You have probably seen or visited some of the several reservoirs along the Wasatch Back—perhaps to swim, fish, picnic, or go boating. In addition to recreation, reservoirs provide water supply, flood control, and hydropower and are important components of our water infrastructure and economy.

This map and table highlight 12 major reservoirs in north-central Utah; dozens more exist throughout the state.
