    The Great Salt Lake is located in the Northwest section of Utah and has eight official islands. The largest is Fremont Island in the Northeastern part of the lake. The Great Salt Lake has an average depth of 13 feet, and is 34 feet deep at its deepest point. Salt Lake City, the state’s capital is located north-central part of the state. The study area is in north central Utah and includes all drainage basins that drain into the Great Salt Lake from the east (Fig. 1). Urban development is most extensive in the alluvial valleys and along the narrow benches of the Wasatch Front. Steep topography and exten-sive publicly owned lands have limited devel-opment at higher elevations.

      The Great Salt Lake occupies a low basin, known as the Great Basin which extends across much of western Utah to the Nevada border. This large basin was once entirely filled with a massive lake called Lake Bonneville ab years ago, which extended into Cache Valley, draining into the Snake River valley toward the north in Idaho. The Mormon Trail extends from Nauvoo, Illinois, which was the principal settlement of the Latter Day Saints from to , to Salt Lake City, Utah, which was settled by Brigham Young and his followers beginning in From Council Bluffs, Iowa to Fort Bridger in Wyoming, the trail follows much the same route as the Oregon Trail and the California Trail; these trails are .

As the lake sediments accumulated the grade of the land surface became flatter and the energy available to transport sediments was further reduced. The result was a condition that looks like the Great Salt Lake basin or .
