PROVO, Utah (AP) - American Fork officials have met with state water regulators to discuss how to protect the area’s watershed amid a proposed Snowbird ski resort expansion into American Fork Canyon

The Daily Herald in Provo reports (https://bit.ly/1VBP7Q5) that critics worry the project to install two ski lifts and a zip line could stir up mine waste and pollute the water supply.

The city and the resort have until April 7 to find a way to protect the quality of the watershed in American Fork Canyon during the project in Mary Ellen Gulch.

The Utah County Board of Adjustment must approve the expansion, and has twice delayed making a decision.

The board postponed a decision until April 7 after American Fork officials said they need more time to study whether the project could pollute the city’s water supply.
