Utah Water Week Results

During Utah Water Watch's 1st Annual Big Water Week (May 4-10) volunteers collected monitoring reports on 38 sites across Utah. This provided a snapshot of Utah's water quality during Utah Water Week.  Below are highlights of three key parameters.


Overall the reports indicate that we have good quality, healthy water! The water quality parameters were in their normal ranges and no one observed any large problems or dead fish during the week. This is great news! Look at the following pages to view maps with data to learn more about three important water quality parameters.

Temperature is important for the aquatic wildlife that live in lakes and streams.

Dissolved oxygen is what aquatic wildlife absorb through their gills.

pH is a measure of how acidic or basic the water is and is important for recreation.


Thanks to all the Utah Water Watch volunteers who sampled in 2014!
