Working in Unison
Jefferson River Watershed Council, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, strives to achieve better water quality and quantity while enhancing the area’s natural resources and natural wildlife along the upper Jefferson River. Originally made up of irrigators who wanted to ensure that water was plentiful and safe for all uses, JRWC now consists of recreationalists, sportsmen’s groups, federal and state agencies and others. Ultimately, the council seeks to develop practical solutions to difficult problems which impact the upper Jefferson River.
The Secret Of Our Success
Since 1999, Jefferson River Watershed Council includes all interests that may be affected by water use and natural resource management in the watershed. By working together and addressing all of the issues that deal with the upper Jefferson River area, Jefferson River Watershed Council (JRWC) has made great strides. Strides that were once thought to be unreachable — are now becoming successful realities!
