Salem pond is a good example of trying to clean up. Try as you may it is what it
Finally, some common sense. D-News conservatives, please see that this was not
written by some "left wing, liberal, tree hugger". It's from BYU
scientists. This "lets develop islands and build on them" is wrong in
so many ways. First, after decades of unmitigated heavy metals pollution from
dumping by Geneva Steel and others, the dredged up sediment is not fit for
building. In fact, if it weren't underwater, it would be a Super Fund site.
Second, the government has no right to just give developers taxpayer owned,
state property. I know our Legislature is developer laden, but even this is over
the top. And finally, do the math. Reducing the size of Utah Lake, thus
it's water content, is going to clean it up? While new development runoff
and sewage flow back into the lake? This is totally crazy. Even for Utah.
