Northern Piceance Basin Water-Quality Data Repository
Purpose of the repository
As large-scale energy development continues in the northern Piceance Basin, there is potential for changes in surface-water and groundwater resources. Recognizing this possibility, numerous local governments, municipalities, and energy companies operating in the northern Piceance Basin identified the need for a common data repository. This common data repository provides an invaluable contribution to the planning, monitoring, conservation, and management of water resources in the northern Piceance Basin.
