1978 Watershed Plan
In 1978, Salt Lake County completed its Area-Wide Water Quality Management Plan in accordance with section 208 of the Clean Water Act. With the completion of the 1978 Plan, Salt Lake County Government was designated the regional water quality planning authority by then Governor Scott M. Matheson. The primary goals outlined in the 1978 Plan were to provide a “continuous planning process directed toward achieving the policy of restoring and maintaining the chemical, physical and biological integrity of the waters of Salt Lake County.” This plan served as a guiding document for nearly 28 years.
