    Annual Volunteer and Partner Gathering 

    Volunteer gatheringWe had a small but fun group of volunteers and partners join us this year! There was some excellent discussion about the sites volunteers monitor and about water quality management in Utah. 

    It only gets more important as we move forward to have interested citizens and a strong volunteer base to help monitor Utah's waters. 

    Thank you volunteers!
