      Like so many rivers, the Colorado is closely linked to groundwater. A US Geological Survey study found that more than half of the streamflow in the upper Colorado Basin originates as groundwater. We talked to Doug Kenney—director of the Western Water Policy Program at the University of Colorado and a member of the PPIC Water Policy Center research network―about managing .

    The USGS annually monitors groundwater levels in thousands of wells in the United States. Groundwater level data are collected and stored as either discrete field-water-level measurements or as continuous time-series data from automated recorders. Data from some of the continuous record stations are relayed to USGS offices nationwide through telephone lines or by satellite transmissions. August 5, —The states in the Colorado River Basin have drawn from underground aquifers at unsustainable rates in much of the past nine years, the trend greatly exacerbated by diminished surface water availability during the extreme drought that is now gripping parts of the region.

      Groundwater discharge that flows into the Upper Colorado River Basin varies in response to drought, which is likely due to aquifer systems that contain relatively young groundwater, according to a.

Introduction, Conceptual Model, Hydrogeologic Framework, and Predevelopment Groundwater Availability of the Denver Basin Aquifer System, Colorado. By Suzanne S. Paschke, Edward R. Banta, Jean A. Dupree, and Joseph P. Capesius. Chapter B. Effects of Development on Groundwater Availability in the Denver Basin Aquifer System, Colorado.

Availability and sustainability of groundwater in the Denver Basin aquifer system depend on water quantity and water quality. The Denver Basin aquifer system underlies about 7, square miles of the Great Plains in eastern Colorado and is the primary or sole source of water for domestic and public supply in many areas of the basin.

The Denver Basin aquifer system is a critical water resource for growing municipal, industrial, and domestic uses along the semiarid Front Range urban corridor of Colorado. The confined bedrock aquifer system is located along the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountain Front Range where the mountains meet the Great Plains physiographic province.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Groundwater availability of the Denver Basin aquifer system, Colorado (OCoLC) Document Type: Book.

As part of the National Water-Quality Assessment Program, the U.S. Geological Survey conducted groundwater-quality studies during –5 in the Denver Basin aquifer system to characterize water quality of shallow groundwater at the water table and of the bedrock aquifers, which are important drinking-water resources.

These data delineate the areal extent of the Denver Basin aquifer system as defined in the 'Ground Water Atlas of the United States' (U.S. Geological Survey HA ).

The scale of source material isand these data are not intended for use at a larger scale. Public and domestic water supplies in Elbert County, Colorado, rely on groundwater withdrawals from five bedrock aquifers in the Denver Basin aquifer system (lower Dawson, upper Dawson, Denver, Arapahoe, and Laramie-Fox Hills) to meet water demands.

Increased pumping in response to regional population growth and development has led to declining groundwater levels in neighboring Douglas : Colin A. Penn, Rhett R. Everett.

Groundwater is the water found beneath the Earth’s surface and occupies the very small cracks and spaces between rocks, gravel and sand.

It is a common misconception that groundwater is in the form of underground lakes, streams and rivers, when in reality, groundwater is found inside rocks: in the small pore spaces between rock grains in sedimentary rocks, between sand and gravel particles.

Citizen's Guide to Denver Basin Groundwater. This guide explores the geology and hydrology of the Denver Basin underground water resource, the legal framework developed for its administration and management, the current development of the resource, as well as its limitations and sustainability with particular focus on the South Denver Metro Area.

It will serve as a useful tool for analyzing past and present groundwater conditions, predicting future aquifer response to continued development, and guiding hydrologic monitoring and assessment in the Front Range urban corridor of Colorado.

The Denver Basin aquifer system is an essential water resource for growing municipal, industrial, and. New Study Lends Insight To Decreasing Denver Basin Groundwater Availability A newly released U.S. Geological Survey study of decreasing groundwater resources in the Denver Basin aquifer provides information on water movement within the system and how it responds to changes in climatic and human activities.

Aquifer Storage and Recovery, or ASR, is the injection of treated drinking water into an aquifer for later recovery and use. An aquifer is an underground layer of sand, gravel or rock through which water can pass and is stored.

Arapahoe Aquifer The Arapahoe aquifer encompasses approximately 4,square miles and ranges in thickness from zero to feet. Its maximum depth is approximately 1, feet. The aquifer consists of an interbedded sequence of conglomerate, sandstone, siltstone, and shale.

Municipal wells drilled in this aquifer yield up to gallons per minute. The Arapahoe contains more than. Denver Basin Aquifer The Denver Basin aquifer framework is a noteworthy wellspring of water for South Metro Denver.

The system extends from Colorado Springs in the south to Greeley in the north, from the foothills close to Golden in the west, toward the eastern fields close to Limon, is a surface locale of around 6, square miles.

Denver Basin Aquifer System: USGS GROUND WATER ATLAS of the UNITED STATES Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah: This map shows the extent of the Denver Basin aquifer system. The Arapahoe aquifer is one part of the entire aquifer system. The aquifer is just east of the Rocky Mountains and west of the Great Plains.

Groundwater makes up a primary portion of the water supply in many parts of Utah, with annual withdrawals estimated at more than 1, acre-feet per year.
