Weber River Watershed Council

Welcome to the Weber River Watershed Council page!

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

Current Status

The Weber River council was certified by the Utah Watersheds Council in accordance with the statutory requirements of the Utah Watershed Councils Act on July 13, 2023 and is currently active.

Purpose

Local watershed councils are created to 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 before the Legislature and governor.
