The Orem quadrangle covers part of the Provo Bay portion of Utah Lake, northeastern Utah Valley, and the western margin of the adjoining Wasatch Range. The quadrangle includes Orem, the sixth largest city in Utah; parts of the cities of Lindon, Pleasant Grove, and Provo; and part of the town of Vineyard. The Provo River is the primary stream in the quadrangle, flowing south from Provo Canyon in the Wasatch Range to the east side of Utah Lake in the adjacent Provo quadrangle. U.S. Interstate 15, the major transportation corridor in the region, extends from north to south in the Utah Valley part of the map area and U.S. Highway 189 lies along the eastern edge of the valley east of Orem and turns northeast into Provo Canyon.This 1:24,000-scale map is part of a larger project to map and compile the geology of the Provo 30' x 60' quadrangle.
