Submission Text
The Uintah Basin Railway should not be approved using any route across Argyle Canyon. My wife and I are trustees for The Bills Family Trust with properties we lease for cattle grazing in Argyle. We oppose the railway route through Argyle for the following reasons: 1. The railway would ruin our natural environment. Including deer, elk, ruffed grouse, and all native plants, etc. 2. The railway would interfere with the rock art and historical ruins. 3. The railway will not be needed when the oil industry ebbs and more eco-friendly power sources dominate. 4. We like the way Argyle Canyon is presently structured. We don't need additional noise to break up our peace and quiet.Doug & Jean Bills
