Agenda & Comments


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the associated safety guidelines put in place by the CDC, the State of Utah, and local health departments, Board of Water Resources meetings will be closed to in-person attendance and will be conducted electronically until further notice. As approved by Utah Governor Gary Herbert through Executive Order 2020-5, this format will be used instead of the in-person public meetings that usually occur.

Public Comment

To participate in Board meetings, public comments relating to agenda items can be submitted via the online form below. Public comment for the June 17 meeting opens June 14 and closes at noon Thursday, June 17.

Board members will have the opportunity to review comments prior to the meeting. Board folders that include project details for the agenda items will also be posted on this page.

*Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our report preparation process is taking longer than usual. As a result, we cannot guarantee your project will be presented to the Board on the specified date even if your application is submitted by the deadline. Future meetings may be held electronically to comply with social distancing guidelines as needed but could revert to in-person meetings when conditions improve.
