We've submitted a proposal for Philanthropic Support for Comprehensive Wastewater Master Planning to the Board of Teton County Commissioners

As our population and the number of visitors to our valley have grown our wastewater treatment systems have become responsible for treating larger and larger quantities of waste. The lack of county-wide wastewater planning has led to adverse effects on the health of our residents and our local waterways. In the absence of any coordinated wastewater planning, the economic, regulatory and environmental issues surrounding this issue will only increase - exponentially.

OUR MISSION

To serve as a powerful advocate for reducing nutrient pollution and protecting water quality in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, now, and for the future.
 

The time is now to Protect our Water, Jackson Hole!

Nutrient pollution is one of America’s most widespread, costly and challenging environmental problems, and it's also becoming prevalent in Jackson Hole. It's caused by excess nitrogen and phosphorus entering water from a wide range of human activities. Too much nitrogen and phosphorus in the water causes algae to grow faster than ecosystems can handle, resulting in a myriad of negative impacts.

Sources & Effects of Nutrient Pollution
  • To have something happening here that is changing the character of the stream just doesn't seem right in a community like Jackson Hole.
