    Water-quality data for samples collected by federal, state, and local agencies for various periods from through were compiled and assessed for streams, lakes, reservoirs, and groundwater in the UYRW, including the Elkhead Creek subwatershed and the Yampa River watershed that is upstream from Elkhead by: 2. 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.

    limited data for small watersheds; only 2 of 36 watersheds studied had drainage areas less than 30 mi2. Procedures for estimating flood character­ istics described by the U.S. Soil Conservation Service (, ) apply to small watersheds, but primarily are based on empirical rainfall-runoffCited by: Colorado SNOTEL Watershed High/Low Preciptation Summary Graphs.

In this study, a peak runoff regression model was derived using dimensional analysis. The model was calibrated by 63 rainfall/runoff events observed from 30 small rural basins in the state of Colorado. It has been found that basin area, slope, shape factor, precipitation, vegetation, and soil type are important factors. In the.

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. RAINFALL-RUNOFF DATA FROM SMALL WATERSHEDS IN COLORADO, OCTOBER THROUGH SEPTEMBER [Cochran, Betty J.

COSTA Cascades Volcano Observatory, U.S. Geological Survey, Cited by: 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.

Simplifications of watershed geometry affecting simulation of surface runoff. Hydrol., In formulating the equations describing the flow of water on the surface of a watershed, geometric simplifications must be made.

A geometric simplification is the substitution of a simple geometry for a more complex by: rado has increased by 68 percent (Colorado Division of Mines, ). Much of the present and future coal mining in northwestern Colorado is and will be surface strip mining within small, semiarid watersheds.
