Observation well data, 1928-1980

Identifier: Series 1

Scope and Contents

The study of groundwater in Colorado through the use of an observation well network was a long term project for the State Agricultural College of Colorado (now CSU) and its Agricultural Experiment Station. The program began in the late 1920s and focused on areas where pumping for irrigation was important. The data found here is primarily from the 1960s and 1970s. The materials are arranged in seven subseries, primarily by type.
