The County was one of the founding partners in the Provo River Watershed Council (formerly known as Jordanelle Technical Advisory Committee or JTAC). Many rules and ordinances within Wasatch County are written to protect the precious resource. Three major reservoirs are located within the County. As of the 2010 census, the population was 23,530.
