Willard Spur Water Quality Study 
The Refuge is a partner with the Utah Division of Water Quality and other entities in researching and monitoring water quality in the Willard Spur of the Great Salt Lake which includes a portion of the Refuge. In 2010, the cities of Perry and Willard constructed a new wastewater treatment plant that would discharge treated water into the Willard Spur and ultimately Refuge waters. This effort began out of concern over any possible impacts to Willard Spur water quality.
