LOGAN – Utah State University’s Quinney College of Natural Resources, the U.S. Geological Survey Utah Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit at USU and the Bridgerland Audubon Society host a campus gathering Wednesday, April 22, 2015, to offer the USU and local communities an opportunity to learn more about a new reservoir planned for Cache Valley.
“Safeguarding Cache Valley’s Water: Bear River Development Project” is the title of the presentation and discussion at noon in Room 102 of the Biology-Natural Resources Building. Admission is free and the public is welcome.
Featured speakers for the gathering are engineers Marisa Egbert, project manager, Utah Division of Water Resources and Mike Collins, principal, Bowen Collins & Associates. A discussion follows the presentation.
The planned reservoir is part of the Bear River Development Project, an effort to address growing water supply concerns in Utah.
The project will develop 220,000 acre-feet of Utah’s water rights on the Bear River. The UDWR is currently conducting studies to investigate reservoir sites and right-of-way for a transmission pipeline.

Attendees may also use Cache Valley Transit District buses to travel to the event.
