The unanimous opinion affirms the 7th District Court’s 2013 ruling that the company’s bid would not overly tax the river by...

Utah Court of Appeals to allow nuclear power plant on Green River 22.7.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
The Green River may soon be the home of a nuclear power plant following a court ruling upholding a Utah energy company’s proposal.

Utah forecast: Little rain, or heat relief expected as thunderstorms roll in 29.6.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Unfazed by dry thunderstorms moving into the region, much of Utah was under a Red Flag Warning as lingering hot weather, gusty winds and desiccated rangelands and forests combined for extreme wildfire danger. The warning — encompassing the western third of the state, and an east-central core stretching from Duchesne, Price and Green River south to Zion National Park and the Arizona border — was to expire 10 p.m. Wednesday, though chances were good that wildfire dangers will remain high the rest ...

Body of rafter in Dinosaur National Monument recovered 28.6.2016 Steamboat Pilot
The body of the 62-year-old rafter who went missing on the Green River in Dinosaur National Monument on Friday was recovered Sunday night, according to national park officials. Sandra Wolder, of Aurora, was trapped underwater “in the roots of a large downed tree in the river,” stated a news release from the National Park Service.

On Monday morning, the rescue team transported the victim by raft to Echo Park for transfer to the Moffat County Coroner. Dinosaur National Monument spans across two states in the northwest corner of Colorado and near Vernal, Utah.

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...

"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>
