The Recovery Program: Overview


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.
