Submission Text
I am writing to support the proposed initiative to promote economic development and job creation in the Uintah basin. I am in favor of this project. The project as proposed has done a good job of addressing environmental concerns and minimizing environmental, while also meeting the development needs of the population of the Uintah basin. The use of Whitmore Park as the preferred recommendation, rather than the alternatives is highly preferable. Whitmore Park reduces the impact compared to the other alternatives, thereby protecting water resources and the sage grouse population. Please approve the project as recommended.Sincerely, Chetan Patel
