Earth fissures in southern Utah
The Utah Geological Survey is investigating new earth fissures in the town of Enoch near Cedar City, for a report due out in June. The Iron County Today newspaper describes one that is 2-1/4 miles long and offers an interview with UGS project geologist Bill Lund.
The UGS has previously published reports on fissures and subsidence in the Escalante Desert region of southwestern Utah. [right, Beryl Junction earth fissure. Credit, UGS]
