The Weir

Almost all the streams in the West are diverted or completely used for domestic and farm purposes. This is the end of a stream from the Wasatch Mountains that ends in grate that leads to a pipe used as an aqueduct that carries the water to a domestic water system for purification and use in the city. Below the weir, the stream is bone dry. It is neither good nor bad, it is a fact of life. Water is life and the cities would not exist without total appropriation.
