Utah Board of Water Resources
The Utah Board of Water Resources is comprised of eight appointed individuals who represent the eight River Districts in the State of Utah. The board has specific powers and duties which include approving projects, administering funding, contracting with agencies at the local, state, and federal levels to create studies on development and conservation, and working closely with water conservancy districts and the Utah Water Users Association to ensure the state is conserving and properly utilizing Utah’s water.
