SEMA Applauds Public-Private Effort to Save the Bonneville Salt Flats
SEMA welcomed the 2021 installation of a new water well and weather and hydrologic equipment used for measuring salt growth conditions as part of its broader “Restore Bonneville” program. The well and new equipment should help increase the volume of salt pumped onto the Bonneville Salt Flats this year to a total of up to 500,000 tons. Stakeholders are now identifying projects to be pursued in 2022 and beyond to continue increasing the volume of salt being pumped. While the bulk of the program funding will come from federal and state appropriations, both industry and the land speed racing community will voluntarily help pay the costs. Financial contributions from the racing community are gratefully accepted at www.savethesalt.org, a 501(c)(3) organization.
