Historical collection of snow water equivalent (SWE) data from National Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) snow telemetry monitoring stations and calculated reservoir inflow for Upper Stillwater reservoir from the Central Utah Water Conservancy District (CUWCD). SWE is measured in units of inches (in) and reservoir inflow is calculated in units of cubic feet per second (cfs). Daily reservoir inflow is calculated from CUWCD Supervisory Control and Data Aquisition (SCADA) data considering the change in reservoir elevation to determine change in storage volume compared to monitored losses (e.g. seepage and evaporation) and releases (e.g. Rock Creek and Stillwater Tunnel).
