UPRR Causeway 401 Water Quality Certification Project Update

02 February 2015 Published in News & Events

On January 7, 2015, DWQ received the antidegradation (ADR) and a revised Comprehensive Mitigation and Monitoring Plan (CMMP) from UPRR. 

DWQ intends to request public comments through the Public Notice process from January 21, 2015, through February 20, 2015, on the Cert.  DWQ may alter the Cert decision-to-issue or conditions within based on information received during the public comment period. 

In order to ensure the completion of the bridge structure in 2015 construction season, UPRR has requested the Cert by March 2, 2015.

For a complete update and to view documents under review, including the ADR and CMMP, please see the DEQ website here.


Why We Care

  • We should bill the lake for what it is—a place of grandeur and solitude, which nourishes our thoughts and heightens our sensitivity to nature. Seen in that light, the brine flies become a fascinating curiosity more than an annoyance. The Great Salt Lake offers a wilderness experience, not a beach party, and no amount of promotion and development will change that.
