Jordan River Watershed Council

Welcome to the Jordan River Watershed Council page!

The Jordan River Watershed Council is one of the 12 local watershed councils that will operate in Utah.

Current Status

The Utah Watersheds Council approved a conditional certification of the Jordan River Watershed Council on April 12, 2023. After final organizing documentation is complete, the Jordan River council will be certified by the Utah Watersheds Council in accordance with the statutory requirements of the Utah Watersheds Council Act. Full certification is expected at the October 12th, 2023 meeting of the Utah Watersheds Council.


Local watershed councils encourage and facilitate discussion and collaboration or water-related issues and concerns among the stakeholders within the watershed. As feasible, the watershed council will facilitate communication and coordination among the following interests:

  • Agriculture
  • Industry
  • Utah tribal nations
  • Public water suppliers
  • Water planning and research institutions
  • Water quality
  • Fish and wildlife
  • Water dependent habitat and environments
  • Watershed management
  • Mutual irrigation companies
  • Local sponsors of reclamation projects

Each local watershed council will designate one representative to serve on the Utah Watersheds Council, where issues of concern can be brought to the attention of the Legislature and governor.
