Significance: Wall Lake is the deepest body of water to be reservoired in the Bonneville Unit of the Central Utah Project. Its dam, built conservatively by four of the principal regional irrigation companies, is the oldest man-made structure to reservoir a natural lake in the upper Provo River drainage, along with the dams on Trial and Washington lakes. Picturesquely placed and well-preserved, the dam and outlet works are representative of medium-scale earth-fill construction in the unit. Wall Lake is one of the more significant of the Provo drainage retention structures.
