The Army Corps of Engineers is reminding hunters that the area surrounding the Little Dell Lake construction site is closed to hunting.

The areas are closed to ensure the safety of workers at the site, say corps officials who are supervising construction. The no-hunting area is located along Dell Creek from Mountain Dell Dam upstream for about three miles.Construction work is in progress 24 hours daily, seven days a week.

The Little Dell project is located on Dell Creek about eight miles east of Salt Lake City. When completed the 224-foot-high earthen dam will create a 20,500-acre-foot reservoir. The project is a joint effort by the Army Corps of Engineers, Salt Lake County and the Metropolitan Water District of Salt Lake City.
