You’ve heard the expression: We all live downstream. This is just as true about the quality of water as it is about the quantity water. The Bear River and all the water bodies in its watershed provide many benefits, including recreational opportunities, irrigation and stock watering, habitat for fish and other aquatic life, and a source of drinking water. Water pollution affects all these different uses, so it’s important to understand how we can protect our water quality. You’ll be thankful for the people upstream who protect water quality, and people downstream will thank you!
