      Great Salt Lake Minerals Corporation received a permit from the Utah Department of Natural Resouces to expand their industrial operations. 91,000 acres of shorelines, wetlands, and water on the Great Salt Lake are in jeopardy.

      Fifteen non-profit organizations have joined together to form Keep The Lake Great to protect these 91,000 acres. This coalition is taking this case to the Utah Supreme Court and appealing to the Army Corps of Engineers to stop this project. This documentary, Evaporating Shorelines, includes commentary from scientists, attorneys, association leaders, and residents of Utah, about the value of the lake from the scientific viewpoint to the aesthetics of the lake to recreational usage. The film includes footage of the amazing birds, plants, and animals that are crucial to this ecosystem.
