The Region

Southern California Edison Co. is spending $5 million over the next three years to study how future population growth in the rural desert Southwest--and the need for more electrical generation--is likely to affect the region's now basically pristine air. The Desert Research Institute, associated with the University of Nevada, will make the study. It also will monitor and analyze air over parts of Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico and Utah.
