JACKSON, Wyo. — Nutrient pollution, which occurs when there is an excess of nitrogen and phosphorus in water, is one of Teton County’s most serious water pollution issues today.

Protect Our Water Jackson Hole (POWJH) is raising awareness on this critical issue as a reduction in nutrient pollution is needed now to protect people’s health, to support the local economy and to keep our local water safe for drinking, fishing and swimming.

POWJH recently produced a video describing the causes, effects and solutions regarding nutrient pollution in Teton County.
