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]
