One of the most difficult resource issue challenges is meeting agricultural water demands during the summer. Several offsite water storage reservoirs exist in the watershed and release water to downstream users throughout the growing season. However, in drought years, many of the ranchers and farmers in the lower end of the watershed do not receive water. The restoration of meadow streams and creeks in the upper portions of the watershed should help with this resource issue. In addition, improved management of western juniper, which has invaded the sagebrush plant communities, may also help in replenishing ground water and natural springs.
