Great Salt Lake

The Saline Lake Ecosystems in the Great Basin States Program Act will establish a scientific monitoring and assessment program to preserve essential Saline Lake habitats within the Great Basin.

The legislation will provide resources for the U.S. Geological Survey, in coordination with other federal agencies, states, tribes, universities, non-profits and other stakeholders, to develop solutions for saving these lakes.

The Act aligns and builds upon work being done at the Utah State Legislature to increase water conservation and get more water into the declining Great Salt Lake.

Sheri's career in radio began at 7 years old in Los Angeles, California with a secret little radio tucked under her bed that she'd fall asleep with, while listening to The Dr. Demento Radio Show. She went on to produce the first science radio show in Utah in 1999 and has been reporting local, national and international stories ever since. After a stint as news director at KZYX on northern California's Lost Coast, she landed back at UPR in 2021.
