Water Resources encourages all Utahns and sectors to do their part to conserve our most precious resource, water, by embracing a waterwise ethic to safeguard the future of Utah.
Utah Division of Water Resources
The Utah Division of Water Resources is one of the divisions housed within the Department of Natural Resources. Tasked with planning, conserving, developing and protecting Utah’s water resources, the division earnestly strives to be Utah’s water steward.
Utah is a semi-arid state and its water future is one of the most significant challenges facing us today. The state of Utah and the division recognize the vitality in finding sustainable solutions to ensure Utah families have reliable water, that agriculture and businesses can be successful and that the environment can prosper.
We believe that we will meet future water needs through a combination of multi-faceted solutions that include conservation, efficiency, optimization, agriculture conversion and water development. Such an approach will help us prepare, plan and sustain Utah’s water future.
