Summary:
Utah Division of Water Quality (UDWQ) is conducting several water quality studies within the Utah Lake-Jordan River watershed. These studies delve deep into the world of protecting and improving water quality along the Wasatch Front.

Full Abstract:
Utah Division of Water Quality (UDWQ) is conducting several water quality studies within the Utah Lake-Jordan River watershed. These studies delve deep into the world of protecting and improving water quality along the Wasatch Front. Utah Lake’s water quality study will determine the effects of nutrients on the ecological integrity of the lake and help establish protective endpoints for the future. UDWQ is also focusing on the next phase of the Lower Jordan River Dissolved Oxygen (DO) Total Maximum Daily Load. In Phase 1 bulk load allocations of organic matter were established for both point and nonpoint sources. Phase 2 will focus on applying a more robust model to develop specific load allocations for sources throughout the watershed. In addition to in-depth water quality studies, UDWQ is also participating in on-going remediation efforts along the mainstem of the Jordan River and tributaries. This work is often accomplished through a cohort of partnering entities who share a common goal of preserving water quality throughout the watershed.
