Utah forecast: Slight dip in temperatures before turning up the heat Sunday 25.6.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Saturday temperatures will provide a slight break for Utah with highs near Salt Lake dropping about 10 degrees from Friday’s highs but picking right back up where they left off Sunday. The rest of the weekend is expected to yield clear and sunny skies throughout the state, with temperatures along the Wasatch Front reaching the low 80s and topping off at 103 degrees in St. George. Friday’s red flag warning for the eastern Utah region near Green River and Moab has been lifted, but in its place, a ... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Utah forecast: Red Flag Warning for Green River-Moab; cooler Saturday for Wasatch Front 24.6.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Northern Utah will get a welcome, if brief break from near record-setting hot weather on Saturday, but the heat will be back Sunday with a sizzling vengeance. After a breezy Friday forecast of around 90 degrees, Saturday along the Wasatch Front will see high temperatures in the low-80s. Sunday, however, will see the mercury leap back into the mid- to upper-90s under clear, sunny skies. Even that forecast is downright balmy by comparison to elsewhere in our desert state. A Red Flag Warning was i...

Daggett sheriff warns of danger on Green River below dam 24.6.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
The Daggett County Sheriff’s Office, citing increased flows from the Flaming Gorge Dam, has issued a warning to water recreationists on the Green River. Sheriff Jerry Jorgensen on Thursday noted that river flows below the dam currently are at 8,600 cubic feet per second (cfs) after the Bureau of Reclamation opened bypass jet valves to lower excess water storage. Jorgensen said that his deputies and the county’s search and rescue volunteers had been called out to four rescues involving 24 people ... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

"The well needs to be plugged" -- Utah goes after nonproducing oil wells on federal leases 10.6.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
For years, the Government AF 1 gas well has sat idle and rusting on Burt and Christine DeLambert’s ranch on the southern rim of Utah’s East Tavaputs Plateau. Questar has pulled out the pipeline that served that end of the aging gas field known as the Seep Ridge unit, whose production has slowed to the point that continued operations are no longer a paying proposition. Yet despite rules requiring energy companies to plug and reclaim wells after several years of no production, Hot Rod Oil has don...

Utah Hike of the Week: Moonshine Tanks -- San Rafael Swell 9.6.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Moonshine Tanks is best in spring, when the wash has channeled the desert’s scarce water to a number of wildflowers. The rest of the year, the angled rock shows interesting layers of geological history. I called this hike “Moonshine Tanks” because that’s the common map label near the endpoint. I did not find them, but you may enjoy hunting for them.&lt;freeform&gt; Directions • The hike is near Interstate 70 in Emery County, just west of Green River. Traveling west on I-70, go past exit 149 ... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Hole in the Rock Foundation asks Utah lands agency to auction area near Bears Ears 27.5.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
State trust lands officials reaped nearly $3.7 million Wednesday in a land auction that included 2,491 acres of farmland straddling the Emery-Grand county line along the Green River. Officials with the Utah School and Institutional Trust Lands Administration are now considering a proposal to sell a 640-acre section on the southern tip of Comb Ridge in San Juan County.

Changeable spring weather is messing with streamflows in the Yampa Valley 20.5.2016 Steamboat Pilot
The on-again, off-again spring of 2016 is messing with spring runoff. A federal hydrologist working for the Colorado Basin River Forecast Center (CBRFC) in Salt Lake City said Thursday the Yampa River had likely peaked for the season May 18 at more than 16,000 cubic feet per second (CFS) at Deerlodge Park in Moffat County, where the river enters Dinosaur National Monument. But it’s a different story upstream, where the Yampa flows beneath the Fifth Street Bridge in Steamboat Springs. “I don’t think the Yampa has peaked in Steamboat,” senior hydrologist Ashley Nielson said May 19. “The peak may not be much higher than it is right now (2,450 cfs at 4:45 p.m.),” but her computer models suggest the snowpack that feeds the upper Yampa still has some punch in it. “When we get in these springs with warm periods, then cool weather, and then rain, sometimes we don’t get a pronounced peak, but we get a period of higher flows,” Nielson said. It was heavy rain in the Little Snake River Drainage that fed the peak ...

Kids like dinosaurs? Check out new Vernal promotion 18.5.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Kids have a certain fascination with dinosaurs. Take a five-year-old to a dinosaur museum and chances are he or she will likely know more of the names of the ancient critters than adults. That’s why Vernal’s The Original Adventure campaign might draw even more families to eastern Utah where the quarry at Dinosaur National Monument and the Utah Fieldhouse of Natural History Museum offer all things dinosaurs. Add to that the area’s beauty with places such as Flaming Gorge, Steinaker Reservoir, the...

Colbert: The perils of mud season ignorance 2.5.2016 Steamboat Pilot
Dinosaur National Monument is a beautiful place to get stranded. At least, that was my thought as I attempted to get my bald-tired, two-wheel drive vehicle out of the canyon, Mother Nature doing her best to claim another flatlander who thought winter was finally finished. And, as the semi-blizzard turned the last week of April into a winter wonderland, it was clear I was in over my head. Before we get to the conclusion (spoiler: I survived), let’s discuss how I found myself in such an unfortunate predicament. Raised in Kansas, this is my first mud season in the mountains. And when my co-workers suggested we spend a random night in Dinosaur National Monument, a place I had never been, I was all for it. Located mostly in extreme northwest Colorado, Dinosaur is as remote as it is beautiful, and it can have a velociraptor’s temperament when you don’t take it seriously. We went on a whim one morning last week, barely a glance at the weather report and lacking any serious winter gear. If you believe in omens, ...

San Rafael Swell's wild burros to get scientific scrutiny 29.4.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
The shaggy dark brown creatures seen roaming free near Interstate 70 as they cross the San Rafael Swell once hauled uranium ore from mines that sustained Cold War bomb-making in the 1940s and ’50s. Known as the Sinbad herd, these burros are a lesser-known piece of Utah’s wild horse problem that’s saddled the Bureau of Land Management with conflicting mandates. Like their larger equine cousins, burros are protected under federal law, even though they are not native and feed on forage that rancher...

Community Ag Alliance: Which way will the water flow? 20.2.2016 Steamboat Pilot
Living at the headwaters of the Yampa River and many of her tributaries makes it easy for us to take water for granted. We turn on the faucets, and water flows out. We open our headgates, and water rushes through. We put our boats into the rapids, and water takes us downstream. We toss a line into a high mountain lake, and a fish attaches itself to the hook. But things may change. The population in Colorado is predicted to double by 2050. Drought, wildfire, flooding or climate change could create circumstances we cannot currently imagine. Existing municipal and agriculture infrastructure will age, and the costs of replacement are rising. Our demands will grow, while the supplies dwindle. So who is watching out for Northwest Colorado? Who cares if we have enough water to meet our needs? Who is taking the challenge to guarantee our water will continue to flow? Many individuals and groups are working tirelessly on water issues, and the group that funnels everyone together is the Yampa-White-Green Rivers ...

Mary Brown: Group focuses on water 11.2.2016 Steamboat Pilot
As the new chair of the Yampa-White-Green Rivers Basin Round Table, I’m writing today to give an update on some of the water issues being addressed both in Northwest Colorado and throughout the state. The Round Table was formed pursuant to the Water For The 21st Century Act passed by the Colorado Legislature in 2005. The Round Table currently has 13 members representing a variety of water stakeholders and interests in Routt, Moffat and Rio Blanco counties. Members are elected and/or appointed to their positions per the requirements of the statute, and the roster is filled with people who have a passion for preserving the water in our region. Officers are elected annually and must represent the Yampa and White river basins. Jackie Brown and Alden Vanden Brink, from Routt and Moffat counties respectively, now serve as the vice-chairs. Jon Hill from Rio Blanco is the immediate past-chair. We have met consistently since our formation to identify, quantify and address challenges of water quantity and quality ...
