Water Rights and Water Resources

By: Division of Water Resources

The Jordan River is the lower portion of a larger Jordan River/Utah Lake Basin. The Jordan River conveys the outflow from Utah Lake northward some 44 miles and terminates in the Great Salt Lake. The Jordan River passes through the Salt Lake Valley draining approximately half a million acres, nearly half of which is mountainous and sparsely populated, while the remainder is a densely populated valley floor. The basin is home to just over 800,000 people, approximately 45 percent of Utah?s total population.

This State Water Plan provides a foundation and direction to plan for and encourage the best use of its water resources. The purpose of this plan is to identify potential conservation and development measures and projects and to describe alternatives to alleviate the problems, needs and demands of the local people.
