The Cache watershed, also known as HUC 11130202, encompasses 1,700 square miles in northern Utah and southern Idaho. The watershed is primarily fed by snowpack from the Wasatch Mountains, which provides critical water resources to the area. The Cache River is the main surface water feature in the watershed and is home to a diverse range of aquatic species.
The watershed is home to several reservoirs, including the Cutler Reservoir and the Newton Reservoir, which serve as important water storage facilities for the region. The surrounding landscape is predominantly agricultural, with crops such as hay, corn, and wheat being grown in the area.
In recent years, the Cache watershed has experienced below-average snowpack levels, leading to concerns about water availability in the region. Additionally, the area has seen an increase in extreme weather events, including droughts and floods, which have further complicated water management efforts.
Overall, the Cache watershed plays a critical role in the water resources of northern Utah and southern Idaho, with ongoing challenges related to climate change and water management.
