Tooele County Resource Assessment

Tooele County Resource Assessment

Tooele County covers 6,923 square miles, stretching west from the Great Salt Lake to the Nevada State line. The county was one of Utah’s original six counties created in 1850, and since has had several boundary changes.

The current boundaries of Tooele County encompass classic basin and range terrain with large expanses of the Great Salt Lake Desert interrupted by north to south running mountain ranges. On the eastern border are the Oquirrh Mountains and along the western border are the Deep Creeks, with the Onaqui and Stansbury Mountains in between. Elevations range from 4,200 feet above sea level at the edge of the Great Salt Lake to over 11,031 at Deseret Peak in the Stansbury Mountains.
