The purpose of this effort is to track longitudinal changes in stormwater organizations’ plans and activities, as represented on annual reports submitted to the Utah Division of Water Quality. There are two datasets available in this effort: the pdf files of annual reports, and a dataset that organizes key information extracted from the reports in a table format.

Data Collection Method The stormwater annual reports for public municipalities are public records that were requested from the Utah Division of Water Quality through Utah GRAMA (open records request) procedures. Annual reports for select municipalities were requested for 2005, 2007, 2009, 2011, and 2013. In instances where documents were not available for 2005 and 2007, substitute documents were procured for 2006, 2008, and 2014.
Data Processing Method The annual reports were coded, and information entered into an Access database. Reports 2009 and later were coded nearly for their entirety. Reports pro to 2009 were coded for budget and education information. Please see the variable codebook that corresponds to the year of the annual report for further information on variable meaning.
