Dirty Devil - Reliable Water

Post by jschutz » Sat Mar 25, 2017 6:42 am

Does anybody know of reliable water sources along the Dirty Devil. Looking at Hanksville to Hite. Flow today is 115cfs, and rising. It looks like Angel Cove Spring has water. I believe that Poison Spring has high alkaline. Can anybody provide beta on this? We're headed out in a couple of days.

If you walk an hour or two up almost any major canyon, you can find a seep or spring. Robbers Roost Canyon, No Mans Canyon, Hatch Canyon,and Two Step Canyon all have reliable water just to name a few.
Lake Powell: storage pond, silt trap, evaporation tank and garbage dispose-all, a 180-mile-long incipient sewage lagoon.

I drank untreated water from poison spring creek with no noticeable ill affects. Then again, I have also drank untreated water from the Snake and other rivers and streams with the same outcome.
