Take Action: Write a letter to your state representatives (sample linked below)


Utah Lake is one of the largest and most productive freshwater lakes in the western U.S. This keystone ecosystem is the centerpiece of our community, providing critical habitat, abundant recreational opportunities, and invaluable ecosystem services such as removing pollution and creating local precipitation. In this time of dramatic change, we need evidence-based management and legislation to protect and restore this unique, beautiful, and dynamic lake.

For more details, you can go to the Utah Lake symposium web site and check the references about the lake’s science and management in the Getting to know Utah Lake article.

Who You Should Write: It’s important to write to as many reps and senators as you can. While several items are local, all reps and senators will be voting on bills so they need to hear from many people. Start with your representatives and then expand to others who cover Utah County districts.

It is easy to find the emails of each House Rep and Senator.

What You Include in Your Letter: We created a template to make this as easy as possible. Feel free to make it your own:
