The San Juan Watershed Group (SJWG) is a group of citizens and local agencies working to improve water quality in the San Juan River and its tributaries so that they meet national water quality standards. We spearhead watershed-based planning, coordinate water quality research, provide assistance and funding to landowners for agricultural and livestock Best Management Practices (BMPs), conducts education and outreach about sources of water pollution, and works to improve water quality in numerous other ways.
A clean and healthy San Juan River for current and future generations.
To find collaborative solutions to improve water quality in the San Juan River Watershed.
Formed in 2001, the San Juan Watershed Group (SJWG) works to find collaborative solutions to improve water quality in the San Juan River and its tributaries. The SJWG works with partners to conduct water quality sampling to identify impairments and their sources while implementing bacteria and nutrient reduction projects, with the goal of mitigating these impairments to acceptable levels. These projects involve working with landowners, government agencies, local entities, and other partners to implement best management practices (BMPs), and they have shown considerable success in implementation and restoration results.

The San Juan Watershed Group is overseen by a five-member Steering Committee, composed of local citizens, who provide planning, support, and guidance to the Coordinator and the group at large.
