NIWQP Project/Study Area—
San Juan River Area, New Mexico
LocationThe San Juan River Area is located in San Juan county, northwestern New Mexico. The area includes an approximate 90 mile reach of the San Juan River valley from Navajo Dam, about 30 miles upstream from Farmington, New Mexico, to the mouth of the Mancos River, about 25 miles downstream from Shiprock, New Mexico, and an adjacent upland area.
