Wasatch Water Legacy Partnership
The WWLP strives to undertake creative and effective actions that conserve and sustain critical resources, create resilient ecosystems, and enrich the quality of life for the region, its residents, businesses, and canyon visitors. The partnership will leverage private and public support to achieve this vision in the short- and long term.
The Wasatch Front serves a unique dual role as drinking water supply for more than a half-million residents in Salt Lake City and surrounding communities and backyard playground for millions of visitors and residents. As the population of the Salt Lake valley increases, there will be more demand for both water and recreation in the canyons along the Wasatch Front. These watersheds are vulnerable to impacts from growing recreation use, climate change, invasive species, and other stressors.
