Located in the High Rockies, this watershed plays a critical role for the health and vibrancy of a major river basin in the western United States. Not only does water from Summit County, located west of the Continental Divide, make it to the Pacific Ocean, but also to the Gulf of Mexico through trans-mountain diversion projects. All of this makes the Blue River Watershed a critical player in water health and availability. Read on to learn more about water in our community.
