FED BY THE PROVO RIVER, Jordanelle Reservoir (along with its accompanying state park) was formed in 1995 with the construction of the Jordanelle Dam. Storing enough water for a six-year drought, the reservoir swallowed the towns of Keetley and Hailstone and necessitated the rerouting of US Routes 40 and 189 through nearby mountains. An artificial wetland was also constructed at the foot of the dam in order to help allay the protests of anti-dam conservationists.
