- The Sevier River drains over 9,900 square miles which is an area larger than the state of Vermont.
- It contains 405 miles of sinuous river. Surface runoff is dominated by snowmelt in the spring and summer.
- It flows north from the headwaters, then west into Sevier Lake.
- Sevier Lake is located in the lowest part of the Sevier Desert in Millard County.
- Like the Great Salt Lake, it is a remnant of Lake Bonneville.
- It is fed by the Sevier River and has no outlet so its waters are strongly saline.
- Much of the time it is a dry lake due to diversions of water upstream.
