Description:One of the major responsibilities of the Utah Division of Water Resources is comprehensive water planning. Over the past two decades, the Division has prepared a series of documents under the title "Utah State Water Plan." This includes two statewide water plans and an individual water plan for each of the State's eleven major hydrologic river basins. Preparing these plans involves several major data collection programs as well as extensive inter-agency and public outreach efforts. Much is learned through this process. State, local, and federal water planners and managers obtain valuable information for use in their programs and activities, and the public receives the opportunity to provide meaningful input in improving the state's water resources stewardship. This document is the latest in the "Utah State Water Plan" series and is intended to guide and direct water-related planning and management in the Jordan River Basin over the next several years. It summarizes key data obtained through the previous water planning documents, introduces new data where available, and addresses issues of importance to all future water planning efforts. Where possible, it identifies water use trends and makes projections of water use. The document also explores various means of meeting future water demands and identifies important issues that need to be considered when making water-related decisions. Water managers and planners within the Basin will find the data, insights and direction provided by this document valuable in their efforts. The general public will discover many useful facts and information helpful in understanding the Basin's water resources. Included in this Jordan River Basin Plan are real-life examples highlighted in the text, sidebars and photographs. Although the use of technical words is avoided wherever possible, an extensive glossary illuminates exact usage of terminology that may be unfamiliar to the reader.
