For the last 35 years the Provo River Watershed Council (PRWC) has promoted a watershed level approach to ensure high quality water for all users and to meet designated beneficial uses in the Provo River Watershed. The PRWC is actively engaged in education outreach and development programs, water quality monitoring, restoration projects, and are proactive in training their employees how to react to emergency situations that could impair water quality (e.g. oil spills into the river). The PRWC is also dedicated to maintaining safe drinking water. We use a multiple-barrier approach to protect our drinking water. Protecting our source water is our first barrier. If excess nutrients, oil spills, invasive species and other pollutants don’t make it to the drinking water plant they don’t have to filter them out or worry about them entering the distribution system. Due to a collaborative effort the PRWC continues to be successful in creating barriers in our source waters and facilitating water quality in the Provo River Watershed.
