    Happy Lakes Appreciation Month!

    Secchi ReadingJuly is Lakes Appreciation Month and Utah has a diverse group of lakes, reservoirs and ponds that we especially look to this time of year.  They provide an excellent place to recreate - swim, boat and fish - store and provide us with water and are a source of beauty in our landscapes.  

    Check out our lakes page to learn more about lake dynamics.  Volunteers sampling lakes, consider adding your data for the National Secchi Dip-In this month!

    CitSci Database

    CitSciUtah Water Watch is in the process of converting their database.  If you have any questions about data entry or accessing old data, please contact us at waterquality@usu.edu or 435-797-2580.  Legacy data is still available at https://uww.usu.edu.  Volunteers are asked to create a login on http://citsci.org and request to join the Utah Water Watch project.  While there may be some bumps during the process, we are excited about the additional features the new database provides for easy data entry, App capability and data and site visualization.
