The Bear River Commission was created in 1958 pursuant to the Bear River Compact (as amended PL 96-189) between the states of Idaho, Utah and Wyoming. The Commission is composed of nine gubernatorial appointed Commissioners, three from each of the signatory states, as well as a Federal Commissioner appointed by the President, who serves as Chairman without vote.

As part of a Targeted Watersheds Grant sponsored by the United States Environmental Protection Agency, Utah State University developed this Watershed Information System (WIS) for the Bear River in collaboration with the Bear River Commission, Utah, Idaho, and Wyoming Departments of Environmental Quality, and a number of other interested stakeholders.
