How much of the fresh water in the United States comes from the snow pack every year?

    According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the snow on the Rocky Mountains stores nearly all the precipitation that falls during the cold months. When the temperature warms back up in the spring and the snow starts melting, it re-enters the riverine system, contributing to about 75% of the Western States’ fresh water supply. Though the snow pack is a crucial source of U.S. water, quickly melting snow can cause flooding and damage to surrounding regions.
