Inside Research at Utah State University

At Utah State University’s Sunrise Sessions, faculty and students share their research with alumni, community and business leaders from the Salt Lake area. Held quarterly in downtown Salt Lake City, these early-morning presentations detail how USU research is addressing pressing issues such as the obesity epidemic and hearing loss in children. All are invited to attend these events at no charge thanks to generous sponsorship by Regence Blue Cross Blue Shield.

50 Years: Utah Water Research Laboratory

For more than 10,000 years, humans have developed water systems to foster economic growth and cultural advancement. Throughout this time, the largest expenditures of public wealth—aside from those involved with warfare and national defense—have been for development and management of water resources. These critical activities rest on our ability as a society to measure the state of our water systems and to forecast how they will behave in the future. For the past 50 years, researchers at the Utah Water Research Laboratory have worked to advance our understanding of the behavior of water resources systems so that they can be efficiently and effectively managed. Dr. McKee will reflect on the 50-year history of the lab, in light of 10,000 years of water management history and the challenges that Utah faces in its water supply future.
