Standard-Examiner: Scar From Water Pipeline On Mountain Above Ogden Temporary, Officials Say

"Not to worry," sez Ogden City Engineer Justin Anderson

As a followup to Dan Schroeder's highly informative and timely 9/4/12 WCF post, the Standard gets the word out to its print edition readership concerning the ugly "scar recently seen on the mountainside behind Weber State University":
"Not to worry," sez Ogden City Engineer Justin Anderson. Thanks to the planned re-seeding efforts of Ogden City and the U.S. Forest Service, the mangled vegetation will ultimately grow back.

We'll see, won't we.

My understanding is that the scar is permanent, in the sense that they won't let the oak and sagebrush come back--just grasses and other small plants.

Righteeo Dan.... just look at any pipeline laid in the mountains.... the scar will be a path of grass...and a clear view that man trampled there...sage takes a very long time to grow and is not easily transplanted...
