The Jordan River Watershed Council is dedicated to the ecological and economic sustainability of the Jordan River watershed through the promotion of stakeholder involvement.
The Watershed Council meets three times a year (in the first three quarters, typically) to review water quality projects and concerns, and to facilitate discussions around specific issues (e.g. instream flows, headwater concerns) or projects (e.g. specific stream restoration efforts).
Participants receive updates via the JRWC mailing list concerning watershed activities, grant opportunities, public meetings, and volunteer opportunities. Meetings may be held more frequently if issues and desire dictate.
All meetings are open to the public and posted on the
Utah Public Notice Website.
