Flow Study on the San Rafael (UT)
Green River, UT
The San Rafel River is one of eastern Utah's hidden gems, and provides paddlers with a unique opportunity to float through slot canyons and narrow gorges of sandstone. If you have paddled the river, please take a minute to participate in our short online survey.
American Whitewater needs your help to define flows that provide the best whitewater boating opportunities for the San Rafael. This survey is designed so individuals can evaluate flows for the Little Grand Canyon and Black Box's sections of the river, which will then help American Whitewater describe how flows affect recreation quality, and to identify the range of flows necessary to support whitewater recreation experiences, from technical low water to challenging high water trips. The information you provide, will help us protect and enhance flows for river-based recreational opportunities.
Your honest participation in this study will help American Whitewater inform future management of the San Rafael Basin, and build support for healthy river flows threatened by drought, development, and new management policies.
Colorado River Basin Supply Study
American Whitewater's staff and contractors are working to develop quantitative metrics that help the US Bureau of Reclamation evaluate impacts to recreational stream-flows across the Colorado basin.
