 Great Salt Lake Work @ GreatArtworks.com (Great Artworks)   (Site not responding. Last check: )
This causeway prevents the normal mixing of the waters of the lake due to its lack of water passages, and since there are no rivers, with the exception of a few minor streams, flowing directly into the northwest arm (also called "Gunnison Bay"), it is now noticeably saltier than the rest of the lake.
In response, the state built pumps on the western side of the lake to pump dangerously high water out into the west desert, but as of 2004 these pumps are dry and miles away from the lake's shore.
North of the causeway, the lake is dominated by halophilic bacteria which gives the water an unusual reddish or purplish color.
