In anticipation of tomorrow’s breaching of the railroad causeway which dissects Great Salt Lake, below is a Google Timelapse of the lake.
Great Salt Lake’s south arm elevation is currently at about 4192.4 feet, roughly 1 foot above its historic low of 4191.35 feet. The north arm is currently at about 4189.1. Typically near the beginning of December winter weather starts a rebound in lake levels. However, with tomorrow’s breaching of the causeway the two arms will mix, raising the north arm an estimated 18 inches and lowering the south arm an estimated 1 foot. Will the south arm drop to a new historic low?
