Echo canyon water leak too expensive to fix Fixing a persistent water leak at Echo Canyon Reservoir in Lincoln Co. is prohibitively expensive, according to esti- mates released by a private consulting firm. Converse Consultants Southwest, Inc. of Las Vegas, esti- mated the cost of repairing the leak would range from $4 to $5 million, and the figure could be higher if suitable clay materials for making the repair cannot be found near the reservoir. Converse said the entire bottom of the lake needs to be covered with a clay liner to stop the leak. Construction of Echo Canyon Dam was completed in 1970. The park and campground are managed by the Nevada Division of State Parks. The Nevada Division of Wildlife manages the fishery and stocks the lake with trout. has you covered!
