  • (Leah Hogsten  |  The Salt Lake Tribune)   ’It’s all so frustrating,’ said Kaibab Band of Paiute Indians tribal chairman Roland Maldonado, right, while talking about the proposed Lake Powell Pipeline (LPP) with Utah Rivers Council conservation director Nick Schou. The LPP will cut through the Kaibab Band of Paiute’s reservation in one of two proposed routes and Maldonado said the tribe favors limiting damage to undisturbed sacred sites. Officials from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) began a two-day site visit in southern Utah Tuesday, examining the 139-mile route of the proposed Lake Powell Pipeline, September 20, 2016. The public tour was so that FERC could view the pipeline’s planned hydropower stations, proposed alignment and the environment the pipeline will cross.
