House Speaker Brad Wilson hosts second annual Great Salt Lake Summit
SALT LAKE CITY — Utah House Speaker Brad Wilson hosted the second annual Great Salt Lake Summit Thursday morning.
Those in attendance reviewed the progress made since the last summit. The meeting also included experts explaining the state’s water source, trends, cycles and potential future action.
“I am proud of the work we have done and the progress that has been made, but we still have a long way to go,” said Wilson in a news release. “Protecting and preserving the Great Salt Lake is a marathon, not a sprint. It will take a continuous effort for many years, from government, the private sector, and all Utahns. And while we may never fully see the impacts of our work, this is simply a race we cannot afford to lose.”
Additionally, Wilson announced his intentions to introduce legislation to create Utah Water Ways. It’s non-profit, public-private partnership with the intent to inform all Utahns on what they can do to assist in conserving water.
