The item of the week is a photo documenting Oil Spill Remediation in Red Butte Creek. This photo comes from Hidden Water, a recently added collection to the Western Waters Digital Library. “Hidden Water unveils surface water systems on the east side of Salt Lake Valley, both culinary and irrigation. The web site follows the seven major streams of the Wasatch Front, plus minor ones, and tracks that water from headwaters to the Jordan River and then Great Salt Lake. It intermixes contemporary photographs with historical photographs from several archives showing earlier uses and diversions of water.”
