Help keep the Oneida Narrows open for accessible recreation

The Oneida Narrows (north of Preston) is a popular recreation area in Cache Valley. It is one of the few places that's easily accessible for those who use wheelchairs or have mobility impairments for fly fishing and kayaking/tubing.

The proposed dam would flood the canyon, creating a reservoir and another hydroelectric plant. Public comment  is being accepted until December 17. It’s simple to do and could make the difference in saving this area. Please make your voice heard!
