Hundreds of volunteers will form a human chain to move another 100,000 books to the new Uintah County library in Vernal. Money from mineral leases for oil and natural gas development in Utah paid for the new library. But Uintah County commissioner Darlene Burns said getting the books moved is requiring a different energy. About 300 volunteers handed book after book down the line Saturday to move the first 50,000. Burns said twice that many books will be moved in the next few weeks to complete the project.
$20 million is coming to Utah to help protect one of the state’s most precious resources: water. The funding is going to several colleges and universities, which will spend the next five years studying, managing and learning how to protect water.
The Beehive state is also the nation’s second driest state. But thanks to a grant from the National Science Foundation, Utah can learn how to better manage its supply of water.
“What we really want to do is improve our ability to predict the future of water quality and quantity.”
