The Portage River Basin Council formed in 1993 to serve as a network for protecting and enhancing the resources that the River offers. The Council is about bringing citizens, businesses, governments, landowners and operators together, to find solutions for a solid agricultural economy with healthy and productive natural resources that enhance and protect water quality.

The Council has met on a quarterly basis since its formation and is comprised of approximately 40 members from the public and private sector, under the following Mission Statement:
The goal of the Council is to protect and improve the environmental and water quality of the Portage River Basin by establishing processes and working groups within the Portage River Basin Council to implement the goals set by A Resource Worth Protecting. Our objectives are to provide assistance, coordination, and planning by furnishing administrative support and participating in the Portage River Basin Council Subcommittees.
