Provo River

The Provo River Watershed encompasses an area of 1743 km 2 with elevations between 1368 and 2993 meters, and average annual stream flow of 6 m 3 /s. The Provo River originates at Trial Lake in the Uinta Mountains, is retained by Jordanelle Dam and Deer Creek Dam, then flows west through Provo Canyon and the developed cities of Orem and Provo before discharging to Utah Lake. The iUTAH monitoring sites are focused on the Middle Provo River in the Heber Valley between Jordanelle and Deer Creek Reservoirs, which is undergoing a rapid rural to urban transition. This stretch of the river has also been the focus of a recent restoration project to improve diversity of the natural habitat and productivity of the fishery to maintain the Provo River’s Blue Ribbon Fishery status.
