Zach Frankel

Zach Frankel (UT), founding director of Utah Rivers Council, ran the organization from the back of his truck until he could raise enough funds for an office. In the early 2000s, Zach helped convened a diverse coalition responsible for the defeat of proposed dams on the Bear River. Additionally, Utah now has a law – written and advocated by Zach – requiring water suppliers to conserve water through planning and coordination.
