A water-quality investigation of the upper Snake River Basin began in as part of the U.S. Geological Survey's National Water- Quality Assessment Program.

As part of the investigation, intensive monitoring was conducted during water years through to assess surface-water quality in the basin. Sampling and analysis focused on nutrients, suspended sediments. Planning and Grants, Water Quality Assessment, Section Certification and Quality Assurance/Quality Control.

The Upper Snake BAG consists of members appointed by the director to represent stakeholder groups from 19 counties of southern Idaho. The BAG meets as necessary to advise DEQ on surface water issues and prioritize water quality. The Upper Snake-Rock subbasin is located in southern Idaho, primarily in Gooding, Jerome, and Twin Falls Counties.

Over 95% of the subbasin is a Snake River Basin/High Desert ecoregion. Its topography consists of tablelands with medium to high relief, and its vegetation is made up predominantly of a sagebrush-grass zone with minimal riparian.

The Snake River is a major river of the greater Pacific Northwest region in the United States. At 1, miles (1, km) long, it is the largest tributary of the Columbia River, in turn the largest North American river that empties into the Pacific Ocean.

The Snake River rises in western Wyoming, then flows through the Snake River Plain of southern Idaho, the rugged Hells.
