COLORADO Ground-Water Quality Ground water in Colorado (fig. 1) generally is suitable for most uses and constitutes 18 percent of the total water used.

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.

Groundwater resources from alluvial and bedrock aquifers of the Denver Basin are critical for municipal, domestic, and agricultural uses in Colorado along the eastern front of the Rocky Mountains. Rapid and widespread urban development, primarily along the western boundary of the Denver Basin, has approximately doubled the population since aboutand much of the population depends on.

F rom October through Septemberthe U.S. Geological Survey conducted a study to assess the quality of a subset of the Nation’s drinking-water supplies. In the South Platte River Basin of Colorado, the Cache la Poudre River, one of two surface-water sources of drinking water for the city of Fort Collins, Colo., was included in the study.

The upper Black Squirrel Creek basin in eastern El Paso County, Colorado, is underlain by an alluvial aquifer and four bedrock aquifers. The climate of the area is semiarid, and streamflow is irregular. The alluvial aquifer has supplied water to wells since the late 's when ranchers first pumped water from shallow wells to grow grass hay for livestock.
