Water Quality Standards Workgroup is considering plans to downgrade the water quality standards for upper Kanab Creek. This virtual meeting is our opportunity to learn and ask questions about how this proposed change could affect Kanab, agriculture, ranching, and wildlife.  

The downgrade of water quality standards is happening as the Alton Coal Development company is planning to expand their coal mining activities on BLM land at upper Kanab Creek near Alton, which would result in a further decline in water quality of Kanab Creek. [See map].
