In 2013, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, in cooperation with the Utah Geological Survey and Utah Division of Water Quality, provided funding for the RS/GIS Laboratory to map and quantify impervious surfaces for three watershed sub-basins spanning the Wasatch Front in northern Utah – Jordan, Lower Weber, and Lower Bear-Malad. The objectives of the project are to develop a high-resolution, spatially accurate impervious surface layer; to provide watershed-scale quantifications of impervious surface area; and to support Utah’s Wetland Program Plan (WPP). The goal of Utah’s WPP is to develop an integrated wetland monitoring and assessment program that will improve wetland conservation, management, and protection. This project supports two components of Utah’s WPP – (1) to develop an approach for evaluating the condition (health) of wetlands and (2) to determine how wetlands function and how they respond to disturbance and management practices.
