The decision to reopen the comment period came after the U.S. Forest Service determined that a notice put out on the agency’s webpage and on letters sent out to interested residents was incomplete, according to a notice sent out by the forest service.
Written comments related to the project submitted up to this date in response to the earlier public notices will not have to be resubmitted.
The proposed 135-mile pipeline, if approved, will come over the Wasatch Mountains between the Bountiful LDS temple and the Bountiful High “B” on the hillside in the northern portion of the city. If built, it will travel west on 400 North, eventually meeting Redwood Road, requiring construction on 400 North.
Most of the pipeline will be on U.S. Forest Service land.
