08 September 2016 Published in News & Events

Low water on the Great Salt Lake is raising concern. The worries are economic and ecological as the water dips close to the lowest level it’s ever been.

“The lake belongs to all of us,” de Freitas . We all have a stake in this claim, and we should make our concerns heard.”
