Judy, of Utah Tar Sands Resistance, explains that Sage Brush implies ground water. This was part of UTSR’s science fair exhibit outside a Utah Water Quality Board Hearing where the board voted 9-2 to not require US Oil Sands to have a water permit on the grounds that there was no proof of water at that site.US Oil Sands is preparing to destroy all the life in a large area of Utah at PR Springs.
