The Chinle Watershed, located in northeastern Arizona, covers an area of approximately 4,880 square miles. The watershed is primarily fed by snowmelt from the Chuska Mountains and receives an average of 10 inches of precipitation per year. The watershed is home to the San Juan River, which flows through the famous Grand Canyon of Arizona. The San Juan River provides critical habitat for native fish species and supports recreational activities such as fishing and rafting. The watershed is also home to several reservoirs, including the Navajo Reservoir, which can store up to 1,708,600 acre-feet of water. The area experiences significant snowfall during the winter months, with snowpack averaging around 50 inches. The Chinle Watershed faces challenges such as drought, invasive species, and sedimentation, but ongoing conservation efforts seek to preserve this unique and important ecosystem.
