Why we collect snowpack up the Cottonwood Canyons

Salt Lake County's Watershed Program monitors snowpack depth and density to inform streamflow forecasting and prepare for spring runoff.


How quickly do stream waters rise?

Daily flow data is critical to forecast floods and manage water quality. Salt Lake County Watershed maintains a network of streamflow and precipitation gauges located throughout the county.
