Event description


10 Years and Counting...Continuing the Conversation

Free and open to all, the Watershed Symposium encourages a comprehensive review of the current state of our watershed. Sessions cover a broad range of topics on water quality and watershed issues with local, regional, and national relevance. 

Hosted annually by the Salt Lake County Watershed Planning and Restoration Program, this event brings together participants from state, federal, tribal, and municipal governments; the private sector; the public; academia; environmental groups; and local watershed organizations.

In addition to the two-day conference, we've expanded the program this year in honor of the 10th anniversary of the Symposium.

Some of our favorite comments from last year

“It gets better every year. There is no other event in Utah that provides such a learning opportunity.”

“It was a great mix of political aspects as well as current scientific research on extremely important issues of water quality and quantity.”

"There is so much research, studying and collaborating that I wasn’t aware of.”
