The Jordanelle Reservoir is on Provo River between Francis and Heber City, Utah. The reservoir is a short drive from resort community of Park City and is a popular destination for water sports enthusiasts. The Reservoir was a key component to the Central Utah Project. The dam was completed in 1992 and quickly reached capacity with the waters from the Provo River. Construction of the dam submerged the towns of Keetley and Hailstone.
