Most of the Clearwater subwatershed is located within Clearwater County. It covers parts of the Rocky Mountains and the foothills, extending into Banff National Park, and taking in a section of the Town of Rocky Mountain House. It is a diverse area, made up of rocky ridges, forests, grassland, water bodies, and farm land.
Human impact includes oil and gas activity, forestry, farming, and tourism. These activities are sometimes at odds with conservation and protection efforts.
