The Chambers Watershed (HUC 12030109) covers an area of approximately 142 square miles in eastern California, USA. It is a mountainous region with elevations ranging from 3,000 to 12,000 feet, and it contains several small lakes and reservoirs. The watershed is fed by melting snowpack from the Sierra Nevada Mountains, which is the primary source of surface water. The snowpack typically peaks in April and May and is critical for the region's water supply, as the watershed receives little rainfall.
The watershed is home to several unique plant and animal species, including the Sierra Nevada bighorn sheep and the Yosemite toad. It is also an important habitat for migratory birds such as the western tanager and the black-headed grosbeak.
In recent years, the Chambers Watershed has experienced a decline in snowpack due to warming temperatures, which has led to decreased water availability for irrigation and other uses. Additionally, the region has experienced longer and more severe wildfire seasons, which has impacted the health of the ecosystem.
