Citizen Monitoring: Educating and Engaging Citizens through Monitoring Activities
Utah Water Watch (UWW) is a water quality education and data collection program that seeks to increase awareness about the importance of water quality and promote stewardship of Utah’s aquatic resources.
Starting in 2003, the North American Lake Management Society acknowledged July as a month to show our nation's largest freshwater environments
some extra love. Only 10 states have declared July as Lakes Appreciation Month, and
Utah is one of them!
