On February 27, the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) touted successes in the 2018 Annual Report for the Wyoming Nonpoint Source Program. This year’s report is available online in a story map format that makes it easier for the public to access the report and helps us better tell our story using photos, maps, and videos.
The Wyoming Nonpoint Source Program works through voluntary and incentive methods to preserve and restore the quality of Wyoming’s surface and groundwater resources. “This report highlights the hard work this program and stakeholders have put into improving Wyoming’s waterways,” said Jennifer Zygmunt, DEQ Nonpoint Source Program Coordinator. “These voluntary efforts go a long way.”
Some of this year’s report highlights include:
- New and completed projects;
- Nonpoint source pollution challenges in Wyoming and actions being taken to address them;
- Updated program metrics from 1999 to 2018; and
- The successful restoration of more than 36 miles of the North Platte River in 2018.
