2/16 - Measuring Water Use: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Join the University of Utah's Wallace Stegner Center for Measuring Water Use: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly on Thursday, February 16, 2023 from 12:15 PM to 1:15 PM MST.


Effectively measuring water use is essential for water supply planning and water conservation efforts. Gallons Per Capita Per Day (GPCD) is a common metric for measuring water use but under the surface there are some shortcomings that if not understood can lead to bad comparisons and even worse decisions.

Lunch provided for in-person attendees. This event is free and open to the public.
