Enhance the Reservoirs & Recreation Program: $50,000-$400,000

The Public Utilities Department operates a popular recreation program at nine of its lake reservoirs. The Department provides reservoir users with opportunities for walking, jogging, picnicking, fishing, hunting, and water contact activities. To assure the fullest access to these activities and safety in the enjoyment of them, the program is challenged to increase the equipment available, offer a wide range of essential replacement materials, and provide continuous maintenance.
