The vast majority of Utah streamflow is snowmelt in origin. Areas of the watershed that hold the most snow and are close to the stream channel such as north aspects higher than 8000 feet produce far more water than areas remote from the channel or are on southerly aspects. Elevations below 7500 feet produce little flow regardless of aspect. Aspens and meadows produce greater streamflow than do coniferous forests.
