Water Quality “Lunch & Learn” Workshop and Jordan River Mobile Canoe Tour

  • Division of Environmental Quality 195 North 1950 West Salt Lake City, UT, 84116 United States (map)

Join US Green Building Council of Utah, the Jordan River Commission, and the Utah Division of Water Quality to learn about new statewide water quality regulations being developed for “low impact development,” followed by a mobile workshop that includes an educational canoe tour of the Jordan River.

Participants will learn the fundamentals of water quality impacts from urban development on the Jordan River, one of the most degraded water bodies in the State of Utah from storm water runoff. The presentation will include an introduction to the framework for new development regulations that will be implemented state wide in the spring of 2019. The mobile tour will allow participants to see and experience first-hand the development impacts on the Jordan River, and efforts being coordinated among local, state, federal and private development partners to improve urban ecological systems, and the health of the Jordan River and other water bodies across the state.

Seating is limited, so advance registration is requested:
