Officials Seek Clarity on Regulatory Say Over Lake Powell Pipeline Project
Tue February 13, 2018 - West Edition #4 Construction Equipment Guide
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Utah officials are seeking clarity on regulatory oversight of a pipeline to deliver Colorado River water from Lake Powell to communities in southwestern Utah.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports that state officials are asking the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to hold off on a proposed study of permitting of the 140-mi. (225 km) pipeline project.
State officials said the federal commission's study should be held up until it's determined whether the commission or other government agencies have proper jurisdiction over 89 mi. (143 km) of pipeline running downhill, not just over planned hydroelectric turbines along the pipeline.
That's after the state in 2017 requested a fast-track review.
The pipeline would deliver water to Sand Hollow Reservoir near St. George.
