The East Walker Watershed, located in eastern California and western Nevada (USA), covers an area of approximately 1,314 square miles. The watershed is characterized by a semi-arid climate, with precipitation primarily occurring in the form of winter snowpack. The snowpack can accumulate to depths of over 10 feet and can persist into early summer, providing important water resources for downstream users. The region is also home to several reservoirs, including Bridgeport and Topaz Lake, which provide water for irrigation, hydropower, and recreation. The watershed is also important for its diverse wildlife, including mule deer, bighorn sheep, and sage grouse. In recent years, the watershed has experienced drought conditions, leading to a decline in water availability and increased wildfire risk. Climate models suggest that these trends may continue in the future, emphasizing the need for careful management of water resources in the region.
