Water Rights and Water Resources

By: Division of Water Resources

The Weber River Basin includes a significant share of the rugged Wasatch and Uinta mountain ranges with peaks over 11,200 feet high. The total watershed area is estimated at 1.5 million acres of land within Weber, Davis, Morgan and Summit counties, excluding portions of the Great Salt Lake west of the 4200 foot shoreline elevation.

The basin has an average annual water supply of 979,400 acre-feet from surface water and groundwater sources. It also supports about 130,000 acres of irrigated agriculture, 420,000 people, and related municipal, commercial, and industrial developments.

This State Water Plan provides a foundation and direction to plan for and encourage the best use of its water resources. The purpose of this plan is to identify potential conservation and development measures and projects and to describe alternatives to alleviate the problems, needs and demands of the local people.
