As clock winds down on Bonanza Flats, will Salt Lake help pay for conservation deal? 19.3.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Midway resident Jonathan Clegg, whose Wasatch County roots reach back generations, came to the town council last week asking for money to help Park City buy a piece of his county. Backing Clegg were conservation groups pledging to match whatever the town put up toward the $38 million purchase price for Bonanza Flats, destined to become a private gated resort unless the money can be mustered to buy the scenic alpine mosaic of meadow and forest on Guardsman Pass. “It’s a special place worth preser... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Salt Lake County won't help pay for Bonanza Flats 15.3.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Bonanza Flats’ future is uncertain after the Republican-majority Salt Lake County Council voted 5-4 along party lines Tuesday to reject a $3 million contribution to help complete the purchase of the high-mountain valley.

Bonanza Flats backers have raised another $10 million and were counting on Salt Lake...

Op-ed: BLM strikes right balance with Red Cliffs tortoise plan 20.1.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
We thank the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for making conservation the priority in the recently released Resource Management Plans for our two outstanding National Conservation Areas (NCAs) in southwest Utah. At both Red Cliffs and Beaver Dam Wash the BLM has used conservation science to determine the best course of action for the future of these special places.

Inside the Stagecoach Dam: Harnessing the Power 15.1.2017 Steamboat Pilot
It is a careful balancing act at the Stagecoach Dam, where electricity is generated for homes, fish habitat is managed and water is stored for a time when cities, ranchers and industry need it. Behind the steel door, mineralized sludge covers the concrete walls and incandescent bulbs dimly light the narrow corridor. Click here to Read Tom Ross' account of his entertaining experience at the Stagecoach Dam. These are the guts of the Stagecoach Dam southeast of Steamboat Springs, and it can be a little unnerving knowing that at the other side of the wall, 9,360 pounds of pressure push against each square foot of concrete. Water drips from the ceiling and falls from drain pipes that collect water from the seeping concrete. “All dams get water into them,” said Kevin McBride, adding that not having a system to drain the water would create pressure and put the dam’s integrity at risk. McBride is general manager for the Upper Yampa River Water Conservancy District, a taxpayer-funder organization that built, ...

Letter: Don't build houses in Red Cliff Desert Reserve 7.11.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
In 1996, Washington County (St. George), along with federal and state agencies, created the Red Cliff Desert Reserve. A Habitat Conservation Plan was developed to protect primarily the desert tortoise as well as other sensitive species of wildlife and their habitats. Now a developer wants to build 700 homes in the area, and build a road through the Red Cliffs Desert Reserve. I wonder if the Habitat Conservation Plan says developers are allowed to have access to build roads through the Red Cliff... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>
