Utah Water Watch (UWW) is a water quality education and data collection program that seeks to increase awareness about the importance of water quality and promote stewardship of Utah’s aquatic resources.
UWW is a partnership between USU Water Quality Extension and the Utah Division of Water Quality that creates a way for the public to help in monitoring Utah’s lakes and streams. This is a free program for volunteers of all ages to monitor water quality once a month and report the data to water managers.
UWW is a two tier program. Tier 1 collects monthly data for education and base line purposes avaliable to the public and water managers. Tier 2 volunteers have a higher level of training to assist watershed coordinators collect credible data for assessment and monitoring of nonpoint source BMP projects.
