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

  • The Great Salt Lake has a unique character and, when one becomes acquainted with her, a well-developed personality. She moves and has moods, she sleeps and she wakes. Like any new friend, one can become attached quickly, but will need an entire lifetime to come to know her intimately.
