UTAH COAL FOR SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA POWER: THE GENERAL ISSUES
The establishment of coal-fired power-plants sited outside the State of California for the benefit of Southern California residents raises a number of problems which are not entirely resolved. Issues considered are: (1) those arising from the use of Upper Colorado River Basin surface water in the production of energy, (2) those arising from the degradation of air quality in the area where the plants are sited, (3) those arising from the choices for the mode of transportation of the energy from the producer region to the consumer region, and (4) those arising from the socioeconomic impact on the producer region.
