Leia Larsen of The Salt Lake Tribune on her latest story: The Great Salt Lake’s ecological collapse has begun (Nov. 8, 2022)
With Gov. Cox’s recent freeze on new water diversions from the Great Salt Lake Basin, Zach Frankel of Utah Rivers Council had a few ideas on ways to save our namesake lake.
Lake Effect with writer Miah Arnold. "I felt so lucky to be from Utah, the birthplace of this actually very well-named lake, the gemstone of everything. The shining salty, last whisper of Lake Bonneville of the Pleistocene Era. A true wonder of the world. Each of the many years that we visited since, it's receded. Last summer, there was a big crowd of people admiring the jetty, but there was no lake in sight."
Lake Effect is part of the Great Salt Lake Collaborative, a solutions journalism initiative that partners news, education and media organizations, including KRCL, to help inform people about the plight of the Great Salt Lake—and what can be done to make a difference before it is too late.
