Basin Planning

The River Basin Planning section prepares and updates the State Water Plan, statewide water-use numbers, regional conservation goals and basin reports. These plans present, summarize and analyze valuable data collected by the Division of Water Rights and provide important guidelines and support to local entities working to prepare and satisfy Utah’s future water needs.

The Division presented at the 2019 Utah Water Users Workshop on the development of the Regional Water Conservation Goals (GWCG). View the RWCG presentation.

The 2015 Municipal and Industrial (M&I) Report, 2016 and 2017 water use data can be found on the Utah’s Open Water Data site.
