This study delineates drinking-water-source-protection zones for Water System Canyon Spring, which is used by the Paragonah Municipal Water System as a source of drinking water for the town of Paragonah. The spring is in Water System Canyon, a tributary to Red Creek Canyon on the western edge of the Markagunt Plateau, eastern Iron County. Red Creek is a substantial perennial stream draining the plateau. The climate of the area is semiarid to humid and average annual precipitation is about 14 inches; however, up to 35 inches can be received in the higher mountains.

This report describes the delineation of drinking-water-source-protection (DWSP) zones for a public-water-supply spring in eastern Iron County, Utah. Water System Canyon Spring is about 2 miles east of the town of Paragonah, within the Markagunt Plateau. Much of the surrounding area is privately owned and used for cattle grazing. The town of Paragonah is a rural farming community that obtains part of its municipal drinking water from this spring, and requested this delineation of DWSP zones. The scope of work included a literature search, review of water records, field reconnaissance, interpretation of data, delineation of the DWSP zones, and preparation of this report.
