The Environmental Section & the Department of Natural Resources Presents:
Water Banking – Six Month Status Update
Based on an extensive stakeholder effort, in March 2020 the State of Utah passed the “Utah Water Banking Act.” To meet increasingly challenging conditions, the Act is intended to stimulate the development of market tools favorable to local water users. The Act primarily focuses on promoting water leasing arrangements that maintain local control, are temporary in nature, and always voluntary. The State of Utah also received $800,000 to fund a three year effort to explore the concepts of the Act by assisting interested local water users to establish water banks in three demonstration project areas. At the conclusion of the three year effort the Water Banking Project Team will prepare a Statewide Water Marketing Strategy Report detailing lessons learned and helpful guidance for other water users interested in establishing a water bank.
Please join Emily E. Lewis, Utah Water Banking Project Manager, for a Six Month Update on the Statewide Water Marketing Strategy/Banking Project. This will be an opportunity to learn more about the water banking effort and engage with a large interested stakeholder group.
The webinar will be held January 21, 2021 from 10:00AM-12:00PM. Instructions will be sent out to registrants January 20th.
This event is free to all registrants and everyone is welcome to attend! If you want this to count towards your CLE Credit make sure to register online no later than January 20, 2021 and please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 801-297-7036 with questions.
