Water storage in Cache Valley being questioned

Water planning is extremely important according to Bob Fatheringham, Cache County’s water department manager. On KVNU’s <a href=”http://610kvnu.com/assets/podcaster/324/2013_06_11_324_11579_2867.mp3″ target=”_blank”>For the People show Monday</a>, Fatheringham said it is impossible to predict whether or not by 2060 there would be the foliage on the mountains like there is now. He said that’s because if climate change or global warming is inevitable as some scientists believe it will be, things may not look the same.

“You need to look forward to that. I don’t think you need to cry wolf or anything like that but I think you need to look and say ‘as those events may occur, what do we need to do to prepare for that?’ And certainly aquifer storage is a good idea.”

Fatheringham said we had good aquifers in the valley and we need to do everything we can to keep them full.
