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.

"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

Dr. Zach Aanderud is an Associate Professor of Microbial and Ecosystem Ecology at Brigham Young University. His research links temporal fluctuations in resources to microbial community structure and ecosystem services. This overarching theme has inspired questions relating to the: 1) consequences of rainfall and snowfall change on bacterial community assembly and trace gas production; 2) impacts of disturbances on bacterial communities and water and soils quality in arid environments; and, 3) more recently, roles of bacterial functional traits in surviving and thriving in extreme environments (i.e., dry valleys of Antarctica and hypersaline lakes across the Western United States).
