Significance: With the crest of 950 feet, the Lost Lake dam is the largest of the earth-fill retention structures built over the natural lakes in the upper Provo River drainage. It represents a considerable investment by the Provo Reservoir Company and the city of Provo, co-owners of the lake's water rights. An easily accessible structure with a high visibility, Lost is one of the more significant of the Bonneville Unit earth-fill dams.
