Jordan River Watershed Council
The Jordan River Watershed Council is a coalition of local, state and federal government agencies, water districts, and private organizations dedicated to protecting the water quality in the Jordan River basin.
Participants receive updates via the JRWC mailing list concerning watershed activities, grant opportunities, public meetings, volunteer opportunities, and more.
Mission & Vision
The JRWC is dedicated to the ecological and economic sustainability of the Jordan River watershed through the promotion of stakeholder involvement.
By means of open communication, collaboration, and education among all interested parties, the JRWC seeks to:
- Establish leadership of sustainable, long-term river, stream and groundwater stewardship.
- Provide a centralized arena where watershed concerns may be addressed.
- Promote public involvement in the management of our local watershed.
The JRWC was created in 1978 to propose implementable solutions to area-wide water quality and pollution problems and to oversee the centralization of wastewater treatment facilities in the Salt Lake Valley (see Salt Lake County Ordinance Title 17, Chapter 17.06).
