This CD contains a report of an evaluation by the Utah Geological Survey of threats to Salt Lake Valley wetlands posed by changes in climatic conditions and by increased ground-water withdrawals accompanying population growth. To determine the potential impacts posed by increased ground-water development and further drought, we used regional, three-dimensional, steady state and transient MODFLOW models for Salt Lake Valley to evaluate water-budget changes for the wetland areas. The modeling suggests that subsurface inflow into the wetlands area would be most affected by decreased subsurface inflow due to long-term flood conditions, but subsurface inflow would also decrease due to increased municipal and industrial well withdrawals over the same time period. Therefore, the worst-case scenario for the wetlands would be a combination of both conditions.
