Session Information:

Integrating Water and Land Use
September 9, 2021 10:15 am

The often quoted statement “when the well's dry, we know the worth of water,” (B. Franklin) is even more important today than ever. Water is essential to quality of life, economy, and our beautiful natural environment in Utah. Historically water and land use planning have occurred separately with land development expecting the tap to run after lots are built and plumbing is installed. The purpose of this session is to cover the absolute essentials of why and how integrating water and land use planning occurs, including some case studies and best practices, with a focus for land use planners. Attendees will come away with specific action items they may be able to implement within their own communities to better integrate water into the development process.
