This past July HEAL Utah lost a lawsuit trying to block a nuclear power plant proposed for Green River, Utah, but decided not to appeal because it seemed like Blue Castle Holdings did not have the financial backing to actually go through with the project. It seems that HEAL Utah was right. Blue Castle missed the September 19 deadline to pay $1,800,000 it owes for 53,000 acre feet of water rights.
