Joe Wheaton will focus on a local example and play with the classic stream ‘health’ analogy by expanding it using ‘healthy lifestyle’ analogies and focusing on what healthy diets and exercise consist of for streams, and how current restoration practice is too obsessed with medical treatments like surgery.

Speak Out for Clean Air & Healthy Watersheds

HEAL-logo-CMYK

Next week we’ve got a great opportunity to speak out for clean air and healthy watersheds. You might remember a bill from last session called S.B. 80- Infrastructure Funding Amendments, which directed hundreds of millions of dollars in sales tax to build massive and unnecessary water diversion projects to drain an already over-taxed system. Well, this bill has made it’s way back to a legislative hearing and we need you to help HEAL and our friends at the Utah Rivers Council speak out against it.

Projects like the Lake Powell Pipeline and Bear River Development create diversions that will be catastrophic for our rivers and our efforts for a greener Utah. One of our biggest concerns is a diverted Bear River leads to the drying up of the Great Salt Lake. If this happens, not only will one of the largest migratory bird refuges be destroyed, but also the exposed lakebed will cause increased dust storms that further threaten our air quality along the Wasatch Front.

We sure don’t want that to happen, so please come and help us to make sure that these damaging projects don’t go unchallenged. There will be room for public comments so please come share your view, at the Utah State Capitol in House Room 30 on July 12 at 3:00 PM. Check out the agenda here!

If we stand together we can ensure a healthier Utah for many generations to come.

See you next week!

With Gratitude,
