Utah’s Wetland Program Plan

The Wetland Program Plan (WPP) was prepared for the EPA Region 8 Wetlands Program through collaboration between DWQ and the Utah Geological Survey (UGS).  The current WPP describes how DWQ and UGS wetland-related efforts support the development of a successful wetlands program for Utah for 2018-2022.

The overall goal of Utah’s WPP is to increase the amount and availability of scientific data on Utah’s wetlands by continuing to build and deploy scientifically-based tools to assess wetland health and afford great protection by determining wetland specific beneficial uses and criteria to protect those uses.  The actions covered by this WPP to advance this goal are divided into four sections:

  1. Mapping and Landscape Planning
  2. Monitoring and Assessment
  3. Water Quality Standards
  4. Outreach, Coordination, and Data Dissemination
