||Recovery Program efforts help to improve Utah Lake's ecosystem
The June Sucker Recovery Implementation Program is a multi-agency cooperative effort designed to coordinate and implement recovery actions for June sucker. The program also recognizes the need for continued operation of existing water projects and development to meet future water needs. The program takes an adaptive management approach wherein biological information is gathered, reviewed and incorporated into the program on a continual basis. The program works to balance and accommodate water resource needs of the human population with June sucker recovery efforts. While the priority is on June sucker, the program also provides a mechanism to promote the recovery of other federally listed species, and prevent the need for further listings in the Utah Lake Drainage Basin.
The June Sucker Recovery Implementation Program has two main goals:
- Recover the June sucker to the extent that it no longer requires protection under the Endangered Species Act.
- Allow for the continued operation of existing water facilities and future water development of water resources for human use.
