Default Re: Utah/SLC area guides

On May 11 2010, governor Herbert signed into law HB141: : Recreational Use of Public Water on Private property. The new law changes the recreational easement recognized in Conatser v. Johnson. This was the Utah Supreme Court decision in 2008 that allowed the public to walk on the private bed of a public waterbody. Now under the new law, the land owner can own the stream bed. This bill closed miles and miles of river that was once open to the public. The Utah Stream Access Coalition(USAC) was founded to fight the bill which is actually unconstitutional. You can support stream access in Utah by donating to USAC and becoming a member. Utah Stream Access Coalition
