CELEBRATING APPROVAL OF THE TETON COUNTY WATER QUALITY MASTER PLAN PROJECT:
Teton County, WY has embarked on an unprecedented comprehensive water quality planning project that will improve our surface and groundwater resources and protect them from future degradation. POWJH has been a driving force behind this historic effort.
The Teton County Water Quality Master Plan (WQMP) project is a comprehensive scientific analysis and implementation plan that will identify known and possible threats to our groundwater and surface waters. It will outline detailed mitigation strategies that provide a clear set of roles and responsibilities for the various local entities that oversee water resources management.
The project partners include representatives from Teton County, Protect Our Water Jackson Hole, Teton Conservation District, and the Town of Jackson. Collectively, the partners selected Trihydro as the technical consultant to lead the project supported by Flitner Strategies for public engagement and stakeholder facilitation.
The WQMP will address the management of wastewater, drinking water, stormwater and nonpoint source pollution, and water resources for wildlife and recreation. The scope of work also calls for community outreach & education, stakeholder engagement, and public input.
Members of the public are invited and encouraged to participate throughout the process.
