iUTAH is an interdisciplinary research project dedicated to preserving Utah’s water resources. Comprised of a vast network of researchers, universities, governmental agencies, industry partners and non-profit organizations statewide, this is the first water monitoring project of this scale to be attempted in the history of the state. Funded by the National Science Foundation, this five-year, $20-million award went into effect August 2012.
Researchers from the Metropolitan Research Center, including Martin Buchert, Reid Ewing, and Sarah Hinners, are providing support as members of the research team for Focus Areas 2 (Social and Engineered Ecohydrologic Systems) and 3 (Coupled Human-Natural Systems).
