UVU Student Innovation Challenge: Conserving Water in Utah County
Utah Valley University is hosting a student innovation challenge oriented towards producing new ideas on how to help conserve and protect our water here in Utah County. As our population is estimated to double in less than 50 years, we need to continually improve our water infrastructure and conservation efforts. The video below is the opening presentation, featuring:
Mark Seastrand- Director, Entrepreneurship Institute
Gene Shawcroft- General Manager, Center Utah Water Conservancy District
Neil Winterton- Director of Water, Orem City
Eric Ellis – Executive Director, Utah Lake Commission
The video is the full presentation, and covers background on where Utah County, and Utah Lake, have come from, and what the current and future looks like for water conservancy. Please watch, and stay tuned for updates as the challenge continues!
