HOGUP RIDGE, Utah — A huge pump that was started last week in a ceremony opening Utah's $60-million effort to lower the water level in the Great Salt Lake was shut down Monday for tests, officials said. Flooding from the 80-mile-long, 30-mile-wide lake has caused about $200 million in damage to lakeshore property since the water level began rising in 1982.
