Healthy ecology – Healthy economics:
How the health of Great Salt Lake and the economic benefits of the lake go hand-in-hand.
The Great Salt Lake Advisory Council was created by the Utah Legislature to advise the administration and the legislature on sustainable uses of Great Salt Lake. Thanks to a grant from The Nature Conservancy, the Council has completed two significant studies relating to Great Salt Lake. The first study details an evaluation of the current health of the Lake, while the second study outlines the direct economic benefit the State derives from the Lake. These studies will be reviewed and the interrelationship of Lake ecological and economic health discussed.
