Salt Valley


Salt Lake Valley is a 500 square mile valley in Salt Lake County in the north-central portion of the U.S. state of Utah. It contains Salt Lake City and many of its suburbs, notably West Valley City, Sandy, and West Jordan; its total population is 948,172 as of 2005.

The valley is surrounded in every direction except the nrthwest by steep mountains that at some points rise 7,100 ft from the valley floor's base elevation. It lies nearly encircled by the Wasatch Mountains on the east, the Oquirrh Mountains on the west, Traverse Ridge to the south and the Great Salt Lake on the northwest, with the peaks of Antelope Island visible.

Every entrance into the valley is extremely narrow and often congested. They include the Point of the Mountain to the south via the Jordan Narrows, a gap in the Traverse Mountains, narrow entrances between the Great Salt Lake and Oquirrh Mountains to the northwest and the Great Salt Lake and the Wasatch Mountains to the north, and several canyons to the east including Parley's Canyon and Emigration Canyon.

The Jordan River runs north through the valley between Utah Lake and the Great Salt Lake bisecting the valley, and along with numerous mountain streams and reservoirs, provides irrigation water to the rapidly-growing valley. The only areas that have not been urbanized are near the Great Salt Lake (prevented by frequent flooding) and in the far west and mid-southwest parts of the valley, although even those areas are beginning to experience the effects of the Salt Lake City urban area's rapid expansion
