2019 Grant Recipient: Cottonwood Pass Vault Toilet

2019 Grant Recipient: Cottonwood Pass Vault Toilet

This project is a joint effort between Gunnison Angling Society, Trout Unlimited, U.S. Forest Service, Gunnison Valley OHV Alliance of Trailriders (GOATS), National Forest Foundation and High Country Conservation Advocates. The vault toilet would be installed near the Cottonwood Pass summit in the headwaters of the Taylor River basin. Cottonwood Pass Road is scheduled to be completed in 2019, resulting in a continuously paved road from Almont to Buena Vista. Traffic in this area is expected to increase dramatically, and without a toilet near the summit, increased E. coli levels from human waste would adversely affect water quality in the Taylor River watershed. Signage recognizing the UGRWCD contribution will be installed at the project site.
