For Phase 1 of the study, DWQ assembled a broad group of stakeholders representing a wide range of interests for the Utah Lake Water Quality Plan. Participants include representatives from local municipalities, publicly-owned treatment works (POTWs), and state and local governments. In addition, DWQ created subgroups of stakeholders to help inform decision-making for each of the following plan elements:
- Stakeholder Development
- Data and Information Management
- Water Quality Assessment and Analysis
- Nutrient Loading
- Model Development
These subgroups were responsible for defining the lake’s hydrological and ecological processes, identifying data gaps and future research needs, and ascertaining management alternatives that are technically and financially feasible.
The Utah Lake Workgroup is an integral part of the planning process. Please visit the Utah Lake Steering Committee for more information about workgroup members, meetings, and presentations.
