WEO water studies since 2014 have focused on assessing water supply and water quality using stable isotope techniques, long-term discharge records, and hydrochemistry. These studies have been informed by needs of community partners and sometimes completed as part of coursework highlighting ‘campus as a living lab’. Newer green infrastructure facilities on campus build upon almost a decade of in-stream and groundwater research. We present data showing the ecosystem services provided by these facilities, such as water and nutrient retention, and how these data are being incorporated into K-12 STEM curricula throughout Utah.
