Media & Lawmakers hiding costs of Lake Powell Pipeline?

By Ed Wallace / Publisher at

KUTV reported TODAY that “A proposed pipeline to bring water from Lake Powell to Washington and Kane Counties will cost $3.2 billion, according to the Utah Rivers Council, a group opposed to the pipeline.

The Utah Rivers Council also says Utah lawmakers were influenced to hide the massive price tag from the public by pipeline lobbyists.”

That quote was copied from the article before it was removed from their site within 1-1/2 hours after publishing. A search of the title “Lake Powell Pipeline price tag $3.2B, Utah lawmakers hid costs from public, group says” shows up in a Yahoo and Google search but does not link to a story.
