Mercury in the Great Salt Lake

This recent article on KSL.com has me a little worried about attempting some swims in the Great Salt Lake this summer. I can deal with salt and brine shrimp...but mercury?

Does anyone know if the mercury is concentrated in any particular part of the lake or is it everywhere? It must not be an issue around the beaches where swimming is allowed, but what about in the main body of the lake?
