Relief Guaratinguetá is settled on Archean terrain, formed from the great branch of the Serra do Mar that leaves the main spigot at the headwaters of the Paraíba do Sul River. On the bank of the Paraíba do Sul River, what extends through the municipality is about modern formation considered as tertiary with a Overlay of quaternary. The city grew on the border of the Paraíba do Sul River, also extended over hills and hills that cut the municipality. Guaratinguetá is located at 530 meters of altitude in relation to the level of the sea. The urban area is practically all located in the plains region. Hills cut the city between the North and West Zones, between the Expanded Center and the South Zone and between the South and East Zones. Environment In the higher mountains like Serra do Mar and Serra da Mantiqueira, vegetation is formed by a dense forest in the highest areas, contrasting with the vegetation of the lower part full of small and twisted plants, typical of cold areas. The region where today is the city was composed of the riparian forest of the Paraíba River today, practically devastated in many parts. There were also occurrences of field areas, with more vegetation. The vegetation in the municipality has been very devastated since the coffee season. Today, with the help of private initiative, the city has been undergoing a process of reforestation of the riparian forest of the Paraíba River and some streams. In the East Zone of Guaratinguetá, there is an Environmental Preservation Area, called "Mata Viva". The area covers approximately 28 km of margin of the Paraíba River. In the city there is also the Ribatingira de Guaratinguetá, from where the water that supplies the municipality is withdrawn, unlike the other cities of the Valley, which use the water of the Paraíba River. In Ribeirão de Guaratinguetá, the Basf Company, which is located in the municipality, made a project and reforested the banks of Ribeirão, helping to preserve it. Hydrography The municipality is cut by the Rio Paraíba do Sul, and the Ribeirao de Guaratinguetá, the last responsible for water supply of the municipality. Some of the main tributaries of the Paraíba do Sul River are the Guaratinguetá, Lemes, Motas, Gomeral, São Gonçalo, and Pilões streams; All influence the urban layout of Guaratinguetá, delimiting zones and separating neighborhoods. The company SAAEG (Autonomous Water and Sewage Service of Guaratinguetá), which supplies the water supply in the city uses the water of this tributary, which according to studies is cleaner than that of the Paraíba River, making the water of the city of Guaratinguetá the cleanest Of the Paraíba Valley.
