No more mines in Parley’s Canyon

UPHE is opposed to a proposal for a new limestone mine in Parley’s Canyon. 

This is a significant extraction proposal that is sure to bring about more dust pollution, more truck pollution, contamination of Parley’s creek, ground water and possibly Mill Creek. Not to mention the aesthetics of tearing up a huge new chunk of Parley’s Canyon.

“This is not in harmony with Salt Lake County’s vision to protect the unique qualities of our canyons and public health for generations to come. Instead, the development could potentially scar the natural contours of the landscape and could irreversibly disturb the experiences of countless residents in these two canyons.” Salt Lake County Mayor Jenny Wilson wrote regarding the proposal.
