Video series promotes Wyoming water quality

— August 6, 2013

(Press Release) Agriculture, homeowners and many local Wyoming residents across the state are working to do their part to improve water quality.  These efforts are highlighted in a series of videos produced by the Wyoming Natural Resource Foundation (WNRF) and Wyoming Association of Conservation Districts (WACD) in cooperation with the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ).

“The intent of these videos is to recognize the improvements various individuals have made to the water quality and health, and to demonstrate what others in similar situations can do on their own land,” said Cathy Rosenthal, Watershed Coordinator with the Wyoming Association of Conservation Districts.

The videos highlight projects implemented by landowners and homeowners in Platte, Teton, Sheridan and Hot Springs County. Projects include innovative septic systems, small acreage management, and animal feeding and grazing management projects. The projects were implemented in partnership with the local Conservation Districts and USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service.

The videos were funded in part with a Clean Water Act section 319 grant awarded to WNRF from the DEQ/US Environmental Protection Agency.
