I am a frequent visitor to many parks, both state and national, in the area that they are considering burying lines. Though they would be buried, and buried gas lines rarely leak, they must first dig through or near our parks to bury them. That could mean years of orange construction cones obstructing our scenery. Ultimately, it could destroy the scenery, because it could never be put back exactly.
What else does Utah have if not her scenery? We are known for our red rocks and canyons. We must not destroy them. Tourists and state residents alike enjoy our national parks, and while industry does evolve, our scenery is much slower. We must let nature evolve, and we must not destroy this.
