The Daily Buzz: Great Salt Lake has reached a record low — and it could get worse

Listen to ‘The Daily Buzz’ podcast to hear the latest news each weekday morning from The Salt Lake Tribune.


On today’s episode, I spoke with water and land use reporter Leia Larsen about the Great Salt Lake’s historically low elevation and what’s being done to save the famous landmark.

I also highlight a story from reporter Courtney Tanner about a pithy email sent by state Sen. Curt Bramble, R-Provo, in response to a concerned constituent’s question. An expert says the senator’s reply could be a sign of more systemic problems within Utah, particularly up the Utah Capitol.

Hear all of these stories in the Thursday, July 7 episode of ‘The Daily Buzz’ podcast. You can listen to both today’s episode and past episodes on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and SoundCloud.
