Things remain pretty quiet on the Great Salt Lake front, according to the first official lake measurement of 1989.
The lake remains at 4,206.45 feet above sea level, the same point at which it was measured on Dec. 15, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The USGS operates the official gauge at the Saltair Beach Boat Harbor in cooperation with the Utah Division of Water Rights."The unchanged lake level indicates that inflow was about equal to outflow," said Lee Case, district chief for the USGS Water Resources Division. "On this date last year, the lake was 2.95 feet higher and had begun its seasonal rise."
