The Eagle watershed (HUC 14010003) covers an area of approximately 1,130 square miles in central Colorado. The hydrology of the watershed is dominated by the Eagle River, which flows through the valley and eventually joins the Colorado River. The region experiences a high snowpack, which melts in the spring and provides a significant amount of the surface water in the system. The watershed also contains several reservoirs, including the Eagle River Reservoir and the Dillon Reservoir, which store water for municipal and irrigation use. Climatic trends in the Eagle watershed include an overall increase in temperature and a decrease in precipitation in recent decades, which has led to a higher risk of drought and increased water stress in the region. Additionally, the watershed is home to a diverse range of flora and fauna, including several endangered species such as the Colorado pikeminnow and the razorback sucker.
