Over 100 Outdoor Sports Businesses, Athletes, and Organizations Send Letter to EPA Asking for Clean Air for Utah

Today, a coalition of more than 100 winter sports athletes, outdoor recreation businesses and brands, and tourism leaders urged the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to protect national parks in Utah and across the West from haze-causing coal pollution.  Citing the enormous role that Utah’s national parks play in the state’s $12 billion outdoor recreation economy, the coalition called on EPA Region 8 Administrator Shaun McGrath to require Rocky Mountain Power’s Hunter and Huntington coal-fired power plants to reduce dangerous coal pollution by installing modern, cost effective and achievable controls, just as states like Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico have required of their local power plants. A copy of the letter can be found below.
