Source and mouth of the Juan Amarillo River on the Bogotá savanna

The Juan Amarillo, Arzobispo, or Salitre River,[1] is formed by various quebradas ("creeks") sourced at an altitude of 3,300 metres (10,800 ft) in the Eastern Hills of Bogotá. Main feeder creeks are Las Delicias, La Vieja, El Chicó, Los Molinos, Santa Bárbara, Delicias del Carmen, El Cóndor, El Cedro, San Cristóbal, La Cita and La Floresta.[2][3][4] The Juan Amarillo Basin covers the localities Usaquén, Chapinero and Santa Fe in its upper course and Suba, Barrios Unidos, Teusaquillo and Engativá in its lower drainage area. The Suba Hills (cerros de Suba) are located in the Juan Amarillo River basin. The total surface area of the Juan Amarillo basin is 12,892 hectares (31,860 acres).[5]

The river transports 3,400 milligrams per litre (0.0020 oz/cu in) of solid sediments, of which 1,320 milligrams per litre (0.00076 oz/cu in) reach the mouth of the river near the Tibabuyes wetland.[6]
