WATERSHED MANAGEMENT PLANS FOR EIGHT SUB-BASINS OF THE

HUALAPAI RESERVATION

There are eight sub-basins on the nearly one-million acre Hualapai Reservation in northwestern Arizona for which Watershed Management Plans have yet to be developed (Figure 1). Watershed Management Plans (Plans) provide for descriptions of existing features and land use practices that may affect water quality of watersheds. Point and non-point sources of pollution are also identified and evaluated in the Plans. Plans also identify management measures that can be implemented to improve watershed water quality. Plans have previously been developed for Spencer Creek Canyon watershed and Mohawk Canyon (a prominent side canyon of the Coconino Plateau watershed) with funding from U.S. EPA and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. This document will provide Plans for the remainder of the Colorado Plateau watershed, the Upper Gila watershed, Peach Springs Canyon, Truxton Wash, Granite Gorge, Western Hualapai Plateau (including Quartermaster Canyon) and the Big Sandy watershed.

Water Management Plan

for the

Western Hualapai Plateau

and Spencer Creek Watershed

May, 2010

The Hualapai Tribe has initiated Hualapai Water Management Study (Study) cooperatively with the Bureau of Reclamation to evaluate the management of water supplies and distribution infrastructure in the watersheds of the Reservation. The intent of the Study is to identify strategies to meet current and future water needs.  This Watershed Management Plan addresses water management in two of the watersheds—the Western Hualapai Plateau and Spencer Creek Watersheds.


The ability to provide reliable long-term water supplies for its economic development needs has been a long-standing challenge for the Hualapai Tribe (Tribe). The arid, upland environment of the Reservation has few water sources and relatively large distances for distribution of the water to points of use.
