    Over the decades, we have collaborated with many agencies to open o acres of municipal watershed lands and reservoirs to recreational uses. In , the citizens of Colorado Springs passed a charter amendment allowing the City to open the North Slope and Northfield system of reservoirs for recreational use when all municipalities. This watershed contains the Concho River which flows into O.H. Ivie Reservoir. The City of San Angelo is located within this watershed.

Much of the present and future coal mining in northwestern Colorado is and will be surface strip mining within small, semiarid watersheds.

Changes in runoff and sediment yield caused by changing sagebrush cover to grass cover were studied at four small watersheds in western Colorado during a 9-year period, from to Measurements of runoff and sediment yield from the four watersheds were made for 8 years, at which time two watersheds were plowed and seeded to beardless bluebunch wheatgrass.

Rainfall-runoff data from small watersheds in Colorado are being collected and analyzed for the purpose of defining the flood characteristics of these and other similar areas. Data collected from October through September at a total of 18 urban stations, 10 Denver Federal Center stations, and 48 rural (or highway) stations are tabulated at 5-minute time intervals.

Identification of the SCS-CN Parameter Spatial Distribution Using Rainfall-Runoff Data in Heterogeneous Watersheds Article in Water Resources. A watershed, also referred to as a “drainage basin,” is an area of land from which rainfall and/or snowmelt drains into a stream or other water body. Ridges of higher ground generally form the boundaries between watersheds.

At these boundaries, rain falling on one side flows toward the low point of one watershed.

Flood conditions stretched about miles, from Colorado Springs north to Ft. Collins. Saturated soils left water with no place to go, and puddles turned to ponds throughout the densely populated Colorado Front Range.

The Colorado Watershed Assembly (CWA) supports collaborative efforts to protect and improve the conservation values of our state’s land, water, and other natural resources by providing the network to connect a diversity of interests with Colorado's watershed. Real-time (observed) rainfall-runoff data from two small watersheds was use to estimate the flood potential of the area.

The first watershed (W-1) is Author: Mohammad Faizalhakim Ahmad Shafuan. Approximately 80 percent of Colorado’s population relies on forested watersheds to deliver municipal water supplies. Watershed health management strategies that protect this domestic supply will also protect other uses in the watershed.

Colorado’s mountain watersheds have a strong influence on the quality and quantity of water. The U.S State of Colorado includes the headwaters of several important rivers. The state is divided into two major hydrographic regions by the Continental Divide of the of the Continental Divide, surface waters flow via the South Platte River, the North Platte River, the Republican River, the Arkansas River, the Cimarron River, the Canadian River, or the Rio.

Colorado’s River System Provides Water to 19 States. Four major river systems – the Platte, Colorado, Arkansas and Rio Grande – originate in Colorado’s mountains and fully drain into one-third of the landmass of the lower 48 states.

Colorado’s headwaters play a crucial role in meeting our nation’s need for fresh water.

It has been found that basin area, slope, shape factor, precipitation, vegetation, and soil type are important factors. In the. Figure 1.

The two watersheds share a common lithology of silver plume granite and biotite gneiss [Cole, ; Pearson, ]. The hydrology of both watersheds is dominated by a large.limited data for small watersheds; only 2 of 36 watersheds studied had drainage areas less than 30 mi2.
