Thank you to everyone who attended the 11th Annual Salt Lake County Watershed Symposium! This free two-day conference encourages a comprehensive review of the current state of our watershed while creating learning opportunities for a diverse array of stakeholders. Sessions covered a broad range of topics on water quality and watershed issues with local, regional, and national relevance. Hosted by Salt Lake County Watershed Planning & Restoration.

Take the follow-up survey!  Your feedback is important to us.

"The Symposium is tremendously important to the future of all of Utah. You guys are educating stakeholders across Northern Utah in an objective, user-friendly way about issues, problems and concerns that are not being discussed publicly anywhere else."  -Zach Frankel, Utah Rivers Council

Juhn-Yuan Su

University of Utah
Ph.D. Student
Salt Lake City, Utah
Juhn-Yuan Su began his Ph.D. Career/Research at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Utah in June 2016 under the supervision of Dr. Michael E. Barber. He has earned his Bachelor’s of Science (B.S.) in Civil Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in May 2014 and holds an Engineer-in-Training (E.I.T.) License for the State of Texas since 2014. He then had earned his Master of Science (M.S.) in Civil Engineering, primarily Environmental and Water Resources Engineering (EWRE), from the University of Texas at Austin in May 2016 under the supervision of Dr. Paola Passalacqua. For his M.S. Work, he investigated various interpolation methods for developing an alternative Digital Elevation Model (DEM) over a relatively flat surface exhibiting a false DEM due to the water hyacinth, followed by implementation of the newly-developed DEM toward analyzing different numerical schemes for the nonlinear filtering employed by a channel feature extraction tool developed by Dr. Passalacqua’s Research Group. For his Ph.D. Work, he will like to investigate water quality issues with emphasis upon water quality modeling, combining the knowledge/background gained from his B.S., M.S., and subsequently Ph.D. Work toward evaluating different methodologies and remedies for such issues along the Jordan River/Utah Lake System.
