The 2011 Watershed Progress Report, published by the Wyoming Association of Conservation Districts, highlights the work being done across Wyoming to address the stateís impaired and threatened waters. This report first published in 2005 and again in 2007 and 2009, highlights local efforts to restore the water quality across Wyoming.
The report includes pictures of projects and a map illustrating the watersheds and the specific impaired waterbodies in the watersheds. Information contained in the report includes the Conservation Districtís monitoring results, watershed planning efforts, implementation of Best Management Practices that have occurred within watersheds with listed impairments, and partners the districts have worked with to implement practices. These efforts include partnerships with many different individuals, entities, and levels of government.

An online publication is also available with video commentary produced by the Conservations Districts with landowners, steering committee members, and partners.
