The Future of Stream Access in Utah

Utah has been in a heated debate about the future of stream access.  The debate stems from a Utah law that essentially says that the public owns the water in the state, but may not have the right to touch the ground underneath the water.  Many land owners that have rivers flowing through their property don’t want you on “their river”.  Anglers, of course, would like to be able to recreate on the water that is rightfully theirs.  Who is right?  Well, the courts have decided that the public has the right to touch the river bottom, but the legislature has made laws against it.  This session, a new bill is being introduced.

Support HB37, and contact your representative today.  If you don’t live in Utah, then write a letter to Governor Herbert asking him to support stream access (right now Gov. Herbert does not support stream access).

This debate will affect all of us.  Get involved.

Utah Residents:
Step 1. Look up your legislators: le.utah.gov/GIS/findDistrict.jsp
Step 2. Give your legislator a copy of HB37, and tell them that you support stream access and so should they! A series of talking points can be found here: utahstreamaccess.org/usac-wp/737/usac/battle-stations-part-2-talking-points/
Step 3. Stay tuned for more updates and rally information.

You can help right now! Contact the office of Governor Gary Herbert, his chief legal counsel, and his senior environmental advisor. Tell them to SUPPORT HB37!
+ Utah Governor’s: Gary Herbert -you must now go to this link. governor.utah.gov/goca/form_governor.html
+ Legal Counsel: Jacey Skinner -jskinner@utah.gov – 801 538-1645
