Hope Valley Meadow Stewards Program

Alpine Watershed Group, with support from American Rivers, is managing a multi-year study to develop a hydrologic model for the headwaters of the West Fork of the Carson River, chiefly Hope Valley. Project volunteers collect stream discharge data at four study sites to quantify seasonal variation. That data is correlated with stage data loggers to develop water quantity models.

How you help Since 2012, the Alpine Watershed Group has recruited and trained volunteers to conduct environmental health monitoring in the watersheds of Alpine County. Our monitoring programs aid in creating an important baseline dataset that measures the health of Alpine County’s watersheds. The collected monitoring data is then used to assess and continuously evaluate watershed restoration projects. See the list of 303(d) impaired water bodies in Alpine County. We strive as a watershed group to monitor water quality and to compare our findings to the listed impaired water bodies.
About us A watershed group is a locally organized, voluntary, non-regulatory group established to assess the condition of the watershed and build a work plan to implement restoration and protections activities within the watershed. A healthy watershed helps filter sediment and pollutants while supporting the many living organisms that depend on the eco-system. Healthy watersheds improve the economy and help provide resources for everyone to use and enjoy. The Alpine Watershed Group is committed to providing healthy watersheds for future and current generations.
