Potash Ponds I

Remy Gerega

Potash Evaporation Ponds Are A Technicolor Surprise In Utah's Desert. These man-made ponds are for collecting potash, a potassium-containing salt used in farm fertilizers. Workers pump the potash from way below the Earth's surface into the ground-level ponds, where sun evaporates the pond water and leaves potash behind. The water is dyed an eye-catching blue so that it'll absorb heat and evaporate more quickly, a process that typically takes about 300 days.
