Lake Powell Pipeline
The issue: In 2006 the Utah State Legislature passed the Lake Powell Pipeline Development Act that allowed for the authorization to build a pipeline from Lake Powell to southwestern Utah to meet water demands. The project would consist of 139 miles of buried pipeline that would travel from Lake Powell to Washington, Kane, and Iron counties. 

Concerns: funding, water conservation, water rights
