I believe the EIS for this project is severely understating the short and long-term impacts on the local environment. My opinion, as a Biologist, is that this project will cause irreparable harm to the environment of Utah. I felt that the description of mitigation strategies for wildlife was insufficient given the large scale of this project. In particular, the effects on riparian habitats would be irreparable, in my opinion. I think that permits for this project should not be granted. Thank you for taking my comments, Eric Green, Ph.D.
