Salt Lake City Watershed Information
Little Cottonwood Canyon, part of the Salt Lake City Watershed Area provides clear high quality drinking water to the residents of Salt Lake City and surrounding areas.
A watershed is a geographical or geological area that is drained by a single river system. What this means is that a drop of rain that falls on the ridgeline will eventually make it's way to the stream at the mouth of the canyon. Because of the uniqueness of the area it is critical that the watershed be protected and respected by all who visit or use the Little Cottonwood Canyon area.
