Hello all! It’s been an interesting winter! We are grateful that Rep. Keven Stratton sponsored and worked diligently to get H.B. 240 passed in the legislative session. This bill amends H.B. 272 from 2018. There was constant monitoring, meeting with policy makers, listening, additional changes and waiting (so much waiting!) as we watched it move through the process. We are grateful we were heard and that much needed transparency and tighter guidelines are now in place.
Utah Lake: An Ecosystem in Recovery
Utah Lake is on the road to recovery. After 50 years of dedicated research and restoration, we are seeing many signs of improvement. It is resilient. It has endured nutrient overloads, algal blooms, invasive species, and rapid population growth. Further progress depends on our ability to listen and learn together.
Lake Restoration Solution’s paid advertisements deserve a C for effort but a D for content
I’ve been reading articles and seeing billboards from the company that wants to put islands in Utah Lake—Lake Restoration Solutions. Recently, the CEO, Jon Benson, paid the Tribune, KSL, and other TV, radio, and social media outlets to publish a persuasive article about what his company claims they will do for Utah Lake. (See the full paid advertorial in The Salt Lake Tribune)
Fundraising materials show primary objective of islands is for revenue generation, not restoration
The people behind the proposal to build the world’s largest dredged islands in Utah Lake describe themselves as conservationists. However, recently revealed fundraising materials from the group tell a different story.
