The San Juan - Chama Watershed Region

The San Juan – Chama Watershed Partnership region contains the entirety of the Rio Chama Basin and the three sub-watershed tributaries to the San Juan River on which the Bureau of Reclamation’s San Juan – Chama Project’s diversions are located: the Navajo River, the Little Navajo River, and the Rio Blanco. The rivers that make up the Partnership’s region are snowpack driven and receive bi-modal precipitation in the form of winter snows and summer monsoons. The region ranges in elevation from 6,000 to 13,000 feet.
