Energy bill prospects dim in drilling, drought dispute 7.6.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Washington • Congressional efforts to approve the first major energy bill in nearly a decade are in jeopardy amid a partisan dispute over oil drilling, water for drought-stricken California and potential rollback of protections for the gray wolf and other wildlife. A bipartisan bill approved by the Senate in April would boost oil and natural gas production while encouraging renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar power, and increased energy efficiency. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, cha... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Is Utah's drought over? It depends on whom you ask 3.6.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Did last month’s cool, wet weather finally mark the end of Utah’s yearslong drought? It depends on how you interpret the data — and how you define a drought. The U.S. Drought Monitor has ended all drought designations in the state, as Utah has finally accumulated statewide water totals that are considered normal for this point in the water year, according to the monthly Utah Climate and Water Report from the Natural Resources Conservation Service. When hydrologists talk about “drought,” they’re...

Rampell: California the latest battleground in Trump's war on data 31.5.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Whom are you going to believe, Donald Trump or your own lying eyes? Trump is hoping the answer is Trump. At an event in Fresno on Friday, the presumptive Republican nominee had the gall to declare that California’s severe four-year drought was a figment of voters’ imaginations. Never mind the record-low levels of Sierra snowpack last year, which, through runoff, provide about a third of the water used by the state’s cities and farms. Never mind that snowpack conditions across California stand at... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Governor urges relaxed grazing restrictions 29.5.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Reno, Nev. • Gov. Brian Sandoval is urging the U.S. Bureau of Land Management to reconsider livestock grazing restrictions in northeastern Nevada, saying they may now be unwarranted given a wet winter that has drought conditions on the mend. The Republican governor who called for expedited roundups of wild horses in Nevada says the BLM’s management scheme wrongly prioritizes mustangs ahead of ranchers — a matter of much debate for decades in the 10 Western states where mustangs roam from Califor...

Wynn envisions water paradise in dry Nevada 25.5.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Las Vegas • Imagine a white sand beach with a bar at the dock. Water skiers flash by a small island, where fireworks shoot from twin peaks.

'Strange' weather yields roller-coaster water year thus far 6.5.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
It seems Utah’s weather can’t decide whether or not it wants to play the drought card again this summer. After early projections called for big-time snow, the later part of the winter season failed to deliver. Unremarkable spring weather made it appear Utah might squeak by with just enough snowpack — but then an unseasonable warm spell dropped some Utah mountain ranges to 10 percent of normal, said Randy Julander, Utah Snow Survey supervisor for the Natural Resources Conservation Service.
