Public and News MediaiUTAH’s mission explored how factors such as population growth, climatic variability, land use change, and human behavior affect the sustainability of our water resources. Additionally, iUTAH aimed to enhance Utah’s capacity to meet future water challenges. Project goals were achieved by studying not only the natural water system, but also the people who use and interact with water, and affect water quality and quantity through their actions. Thus, much of the work conducted by iUTAH happened in the neighborhoods and subdivisions of both urban and rural communities across the state, and involved citizens from all walks of life. This allowed iUTAH to fufil the commitment to provide societally relevant science to the citizens of our state, and to help build an inclusive and diverse water-wise and scientifically literate workforce and citizenry of tomorrow.
