A legal ruling on the stream access issue in Utah came down Monday and it answered, sort of, some questions. Judge Derek Pullan made the long awaited and overdue decision Monday on the lawsuit the Utah Stream Access Coalition brought against the state regarding the constitutionality of HB141.
Pullan ruled that the Utah Constitution clearly regards waters HB141 restricted from public access two years ago as owned by the state and they must be managed in public trust. Pullan, however, did not say that public access on streams crossing private property is required. He has asked the involved parties to provide him with more information for another ruling later this summer.
Regardless of Pullan's final ruling, the issue is long from settled.
