Salt Lake City, UT – On Tuesday, January 5th at the Utah State Capitol, a long list of interested parties are signing an agreement to protect Nine Mile Canyon. They include the Bureau of Land Management, environmental, archaeological and Native American groups and a company developing hundreds of natural gas wells on the West Tavaputs Plateau.
