Elevated levels of harmful bacteria cause by the Utah Lake algae bloom have been found in the Jordan River and Salt Lake County canal system.
Residents and their pets are strongly advised to avoid using water, or coming into contact with water from the Jordan River or canals. Salt Lake City’s drinking water comes from a different source and is NOT impacted by this issue. For more information visit the Utah DEQ webpage.
Council Members Stan Penfold and Derek Kitchen, along with the Mayor and Police Chief, helped cut the ribbon on July 19 for the opening day of the Community Connection Center, a service center for the City’s homeless. Penfold and the Council led the effort to start the program, housed on the Rio Grande area, which will include eight social workers based out of the police department.
Salt Lake City has set a landmark goal in reducing the City’s carbon footprint.
The Council and Mayor laid out the plan on the steps of City Hall on July 13 to transition the community to 100% renewable energy sources by 2032 and to reduce carbon emissions citywide by 80% by 2040.
The commitment, called Climate Positive 2040, comes as a result of a Joint Resolution sponsored by Council Member Erin Mendenhall and signed by Mayor Biskupski and the Council. More details on this commitment are available here.
