Submission Text
To whom it may concern, I have grown up camping, fishing, hunting and skiing in the Uintah's. They mean so much to me, and this railroad is travesty against this place. The Uintah basin and mountains are already greatly impacted by humans and industry, and I believe the balance needs to be maintained. This excessive railroad is completely unnecessary; no one but wealthy developers and their friends in the legislature wants this. It will destroy a beautiful place, poisoning water and air key for the biodiversity and human life around the Uintahs. Please, put development money towards the future, not environmental destruction and fossil fuels. This is not about long term production, but instead short term developer gain. Don't build a rail road. All the best, Mathias
