Morgan County Resource Assessment

Morgan County consists of six hundred ten square miles (610) that are nestled within the Wasatch Mountains. The 7129 (2000) inhabitants enjoy the almost mile high elevation which affords cool nights in the hot summer. The main entrance to Morgan County is through Weber Canyon which opens on both the east and northwest sides of the county. The Weber River flows from the east to the west through this canyon. Morgan provides thirteen tributary creeks that add to the flow of the river as it leads its way to the Great Salt Lake. Several world class ski resorts are located within a 35 minute to an hour's drive from Morgan. Bicyclists enjoy touring throughout Morgan Countywhich is known for its spectacular scenery and wildlife.

Two dams, East Canyon and Lost Creek, are situated within Morgan's boundaries. These provide both irrigation and culinary water for the lower counties. Summer recreation is also provided at the designated State Parks surrounding the East Canyon and Lost Creek Reservoirs.
