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

  • Sunday evening in March 2016, our family visited Black Rock Beach to view the Great Salt Lake. My one year old son just loved running up and down the beach, and touching his toes in the salty water. It was evening and as the sun settled in the west, the lake came alive with previously hidden texture and beauty. We watched in awe as the magnificence of the lake reviled itself, and I just had to capture the moment with my camera.
