Evaluation of the Pagosa Springs Geothermal Reservoir and Implications of Potential Additional Reservoir Development
The Town of Pagosa Springs is located 280 miles from Denver on the north bank of the San Juan River in southwest Colorado as shown on the Index Map, Some time before 1920 the first well...

Joint Pond-Wetland System Performance in Colorado
The Shop Creek retention pond and follow-up wetlands were constructed in 1989, by the City of Aurora, Colorado, and the Cherry Creek Basin Water Quality Authority to enhance urban storm...

Object-oriented Model of Colorado River Salinity
A salt balance is incorporated into an object-oriented river-basin model and applied to the Colorado River. The model simulates seasonal variations in the basin's water balance and employs...

Prediction of Gravel Bedload with SAM
Bedload measurements for Little Beaver Creek in Colorado were used to test the sediment transport functions included in SAM. The test results showed that Toffaleti predicts total bedload...

A Nested-Model Approach to Investigate Climate Change
Determination of the spatial and temporal distribution of precipitation in mountainous regions is critical for assessing the effects of climate variability on water resources in these...

Atmospheric Circulation and Snowpack in the Gunnison River Basin
Winter mean 700-millibar height anomalies over the eastern North Pacific Ocean and the western United States are related to variability in snowpack accumulations measured on or about April...

Water and Wildlife Enhancement with Land Retirement
This case analysis compares costs of land retirement and current on-going structural improvements for salinity reduction in the Colorado River. Results suggest land retirement programs...

The Economic Cost of Stocking Catchable Rainbow Trout
States annually stock about 20 million pounds of catchable trout in public waters. Complete information on cost is essential to help wildlife agencies make operating and planning decisions....

Aquifer Storage and Recovery at the Centennial Water and Sanitation District
water in a suitable aquifer, the peak time capacity of CWSD could be increased while delaying the water treatment plant (WTP) expansion currently scheduled for 1996. To validate this assumption,...

Predicting Hydrologic Impacts of a Severe and Sustained Drought on the Colorado River Basin
We investigated the impacts of a severe and sustained drought (SSD) on the hydrology of the Colorado River Basin. The simulation was carried out using the Colorado River Network (CORN)...

A Gaming Analysis of Drought-Coping Policy Options
Eight persons, representing the seven Colorado River Basin state and the Secretary of the Interior, managed a severe, sustained drought in the basin. The drought was portrayed by a simulation...
