Representing urban water demands economically is useful to understand how anticipated changes like population growth, conservation, water development, climate change, and environmental water demands may affect water deliveries and scarcity. Utah is the second driest state in the nation, while per capita water use is near the highest in the nation, averaging 167 gallons per person per day. This implies that creative water management will be ongoing in Utah’s future.

Research that tests and validates environmental variables to identify ecologically-meaningful aquatic habitat, but that is simple enough to be completed at the statewide scale is needed to improve aquatic habitat suitability modeling so that managers can quickly and cheaply identify suitable and unsuitable habitats, prioritize restoration dollars, and make scientifically-based decisions. I will synthesize large spatial scale environmental datasets that are recently available from GIS and remotely-sensed data to develop statewide aquatic habitat suitability models for Utah.

This is intended as a follow-up activity to the 2016 Alan Alda Center for
Communicating Science workshop and the 2017 Broader Impacts Forum that iUTAH
sponsored together with the University of Utah Vice President for Research Office
and the Utah State University Office of Research and Graduate Studies. In the Alda
workshop, participants learned how to craft effective messages to communicate
scientific concepts to diverse audiences (public, media, stakeholders) in a dynamic
and compelling way using improvisation-based techniques. The Broader Impacts
