Conservation group applauds Legislature's passage of 10-year water leasing program

Utah Trout Unlimited indicates that legislation recently signed by Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr. will have positive impacts on the state's native fish resources and water right holders.

The legislation passed the Utah Legislature and establishes a 10-year pilot program allowing water right holders to lease water to help improve instream flows to benefit native trout populations.

The measure gives farmers and ranchers across the state greater freedom to manage water, according to the conservation group. Species that will benefit from the law include Utah's state fish - the Bonneville cutthroat.

Under the previous law, right holders risked losing water used for conservation, concluded the group.

Gray wolf population in Rocky Mountains removed from endangered species listing

Last week, the federal government removed the northern Rocky Mountain gray wolf from the endangered species list.

The delisting action designated the northern Rocky Mountain wolf district population segment as the area including a corner of north-central Utah as well as all of Montana, Idaho and Wyoming along with the eastern third of Washington and Oregon.

Once a species is delisted, a state or tribe has sole management responsibility. Wolves in national parks will remain under federal management authority.

For more information on northern Rocky Mountain gray wolves, Carbon County residents with Internet access may visit www.fws.gov/mountainprairie/species/mammals/wolf/.
