EAST CANYON RESERVOIR

Reservoir Levels Weather Hydrology


East Canyon Reservoir is a man-made lake located in Morgan County, Utah. It was originally built in 1929 for irrigation purposes, but today it serves as a popular recreational destination for fishing, boating, and camping. The reservoir is fed by East Canyon Creek and several small tributaries, with a total inflow of approximately 16,000 acre-feet per year. The primary surface flow provider is East Canyon Creek, which originates in the Wasatch Mountains and flows through a narrow canyon before entering the reservoir. Snowpack also contributes significantly to the reservoir's water supply, with an average annual snowfall of 400 inches in the surrounding mountains. East Canyon Reservoir is also used for agricultural purposes, with water diverted for irrigation in the surrounding area.
