Salt Lake City, UT – The Bear River is the main source for the Great Salt Lake, and on its journey from the high Uinta Mountains through three Western States, the water is used for habitat, farms, electricity, recreation, lawns and homes. Craig Denton has written a new book, and in it, he describes how Urban Utah's thirst for water will chart the course of the river. Thursday on the program, Denton joins Doug as part of Water Wise Utah.

    Water Wise Utah is a collaborative University of Utah project to raise awareness of critical water issues.
