By means of storage reservoirs, distribution works, and water exchanges, the Bear River project, first phase, would increase the usable water supply of Bear River below Bear Lake and its Cache Valley tributaries, Cub River, Mink Creek, for irrigation, municipal and industrial uses, and fish and wildlife propagation. Project reservoirs would also provide recreation and flood control benefits. The Project would have main stem and East Cache segments.
