Boat Harbor Workers Getting Ready for Rush of Boaters

Even on this somewhat windy day, with big waves on Utah Lake, people are putting their boats in. American Fork harbor master Cal Houghton says, "We are in for a really busy summer. In fact, it's been busy this last weekend."

He says they've been busy upgrading their docks. They're hoping to expand their parking lot. They are also looking to put in another ramp because there just isn't enough room. Some days trucks pulling boats have to wait lined up down the road. The dock attracts people from Salt Lake, American Fork and Lehi.

As for boating this summer, Houghton says there will be enough water, but if we get another low snow pack year things could get tough next summer.
