Utah Lake algal bloom moving into Jordan River

20 July 2016 Published in News & Events

State officials have begun sampling the Jordan River and wetlands near Great Salt Lake in Davis County. The Central Davis Sewer District, which is involved in an ongoing effort to study the Great Salt Lake, plans to collect samples from Farmington Bay on Wednesday and share that data with the Utah Department of Environmental Quality.

We will continue to post updates on the sampling as we get them.

Why We Care
