There won't be any fishing or camping at a popular north-central Utah reservoir this Memorial Day weekend.

Mill Hollow Reservoir has been drained so repairs can be made to its dam. The reservoir is a popular fishing and camping spot off SR-35 near Francis and Woodland.

Work to repair and improve the dam will continue for the next 18 months. The reservoir will not be stocked with fish until after the project is completed in fall 2008.

Although there is some water in the reservoir from the spring runoff, there are no fish in the reservoir.

The Mill Hollow campground is also being renovated and repaired. The campground will remain closed until 2009. Work on the reservoir does not affect the Mill Hollow Outdoor Education Center operated by Granite School District. That center remains open for student, family and community outdoor programs spring, summer and fall.
