Where did the salt of Bonneville go? The BLM effed up... they screwed up bad

The Save the salt coalition and SEMA got BLM to take action, do a study, and conclude that a replenishment program would stabilize the Salt Flats.

But BLM went into an arrangement with the the last mining company, and didn't make a regulation that would continue to force all mining operations in Utah to adhere to the same level of replenishment, and leave the salt in the Bonneville Salt Flats to the national landmark that it is... and not being sold in bags to apply to roads.

The company currently mining in Intrepid Potash Based in Denver, Colorado, Intrepid Potash, Inc. owns and operates Intrepid Potash - Moab, LLC, Intrepid Potash - Wendover, LLC, both potash mines located in Utah; and Intrepid Potash - New Mexico, LLC, with operations in Carlsbad, New Mexico.

Buy your salt from someone else if you like racing in general, or Bonneville specifically

I got motivated by reading Jean Jennings editorial in Automobile Magazine, Oct 2011 issue
