Great Salt Lake Causeway Breach

07 December 2016 Published in News & Events

The new Great Salt Lake breach was opened on Dec. 1 by the Union Pacific Railroad Company. This created a new opening between the north and the south arm of the Lake, allowing water to flow between the two sides.

We are still getting lots of pictures and videos of the breach and we will be posting them here, http://fogsl.org/advocacy/item/586-new-breach-allows-flow-on-the-great-salt-lake

Why We Care

  • Somewhere there should be a place for artists and tourists—if no one else is interested—to watch the gulls wheel into a flaming sunset and to ripple their hands in the smooth brine.

    George Dibble, "Deserted Site Remains Tourist Artist Mecca," Salt Lake Tribune, 1961
