SALT LAKE CITY — In Salt Lake City Wednesday, a demonstration was held to stop the inland port project.

Environmental and community groups say the project threatens the wetlands near the Great Salt Lake and will bring increased pollution to the entire valley.

"Our concern is that this area will develop in a way that will harm our quality of life, will harm bird habitat, wildlife habitat, cause traffic congestion and problems for neighboring communities," said Deeda Seed, a spokeswoman for the Center for Biological Diversity.
