Take the Water Quality Restoration & Protection Survey

Help us plan for ways to restore and protect Utah’s waters. Share your thoughts on the water quality benefits and threats to our rivers, streams, lakes and reservoirs.

This survey takes about 10 minutes.

Results are anonymous.


The Division of Water Quality (DWQ) is prioritizing impaired waters for Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) development, watershed planning, and watershed protection over the next 10 years.

This effort, known as Vision 2.0, will serve as a road map for DWQ’s Watershed Protection Section. The plan will help facilitate robust and efficient monitoring, greater partner agency and stakeholder planning, and clarity and transparency in how we protect and restore Utah’s waters.

DWQ first prioritized impaired waters in 2016. As a result, we have focused on water quality impairments with the greatest risk to public health. Since that time, several E. coli TMDLs were developed and best management practices were implemented to reduce harmful bacteria in the North Fork Virgin River through Zion National Park, Fremont River through Capitol Reef National Park, Spring Creek near Heber City, and Jordan River and its tributaries in the Salt Lake valley.
