Duchesne County Commission Considers Ashley Forest West Zone Projects

by | Apr 11, 2024 | News | 0 comments

Projects needing done in the west zone of Ashley National Forest were discussed during the Duchesne County Commission meeting earlier this month. The projects are needed due to the devastation caused by the East Fork Fire that burned in Duchesne County from August to November in 2020. Nearly 90,000 acres of land burned and 11 structures were destroyed. Debris flows caused by rain on the burn scars in the years since have caused additional damage, including to the Moon Lake recreation complex resulting in the closure of the popular Moon Lake Campground.
The Moon Lake water system well, Moon Lake Campground debris flow management, and Brown Duck Creek crossing are each in need of repair. These and other Ashley National Forest projects discussed, including the West Zone vault toilet replacements and Mill Park mineral exploration, were also supported by the Duchesne County Commission as consistent with the Duchesne County Resource Management Plan.
The Commission approved a letter to be presented to the Ashley National Forest in support of the needed West Zone projects.
