Report to Utah Legislature - A Performance Audit of Projections of Utah's Water Needs May 2015

A Legislative Audit to determine the reliability of the Utah Division of Water Resources data and assess the accuracy of its projections of water demand and supply to address projected water needs of Utah’s growing population by 2060 was released in May 2015. The audit lists a passel of things that need to be addressed to provide a more accurate picture of Utah’s water supply and needs. It also indicates that any shortfall in the water supply by 2060 could be filled from current sources with agricultural water conversions and more efficient water use without the need to develop 200,000 acre feet/annually of Bear River water.

Why We Care

  • Sunday evening in March 2016, our family visited Black Rock Beach to view the Great Salt Lake. My one year old son just loved running up and down the beach, and touching his toes in the salty water. It was evening and as the sun settled in the west, the lake came alive with previously hidden texture and beauty. We watched in awe as the magnificence of the lake reviled itself, and I just had to capture the moment with my camera.
