Groundwater Data Collection

 Collection
Identifier: WGDC
Abstract Colorado State University's strength in groundwater research evolved naturally from the state's early residents needing information on irrigated agriculture. The data, maps, charts, drafts, correspondence, photographs, final reports, and reference materials that were produced by or collected for these groundwater studies over the years are what comprise the Groundwater Data Collection. Materials relate to the groundwater studies that CSU researchers conducted primarily in eastern Colorado...

Records of GASP

 Collection
Identifier: WGAS
Abstract The Groundwater Appropriators of the South Platte River Basin, Inc. (GASP) was a non-profit well-augmentation company, the first organization of its kind in Colorado. Founded in 1972, its purpose was to offset depletions to the South Platte River caused by pumping of the South Platte valley-fill aquifer. At its peak, GASP served more than 3,000 wells in northeastern Colorado. As state regulation of this activity was modified, the company ceased operations in 2003 and sold the last of its...
