The Tuolumne River supplies 85% of the water for 2.4 million people. It originates from pristine spring snowmelt as far upstream as Mt. Lyell at an elevation of 13,114 feet.

The City and County of San Francisco protects the resources entrusted to its care by continuously monitoring this watershed and working with the park to minimize pollution.

Natural occurrences such as fire and erosion can affect water quality. More than 1,000 water samples are taken annually to protect the water quality of the Hetch Hetchy System.

(inset) What is Watershed? A watershed is an area that is delineated by high ridges such as cliffs, hills and mountains. Rain or snowmelt flows down from the ridges and collects in streams, rivers and other water bodies, such as lakes and reservoirs. Watershed protection is a top priority because it affects the quality of water for people downstream and everything that lives within these boundaries.
