The Utah Water Research Laboratory

Celebrating 50 Years!

For more than 50 years, the UWRL has been a leader in applied research aimed at solving current and future interdisciplinary water related challenges here in Utah and around the globe.  This tradition continues today, with internationally renowned UWRL faculty and their students engaged in cutting-edge research benefiting all 29 Utah counties, several states, and historically more than 70 countries. 

As we celebrate The Year of Water in 2015, we honor our past by looking back at the UWRL's significant research and accomplishments over the past 50 years, from our building dedication in 1965 to now, and we honor our future by looking ahead  to anticipate the water resources management needs in the years to come.
