Province-wide SDE spatial view displaying dam locations. The public view displays a subset of the attribute data
Province-wide SDE spatial layer displaying water licence points of diversion joined with licence information. This layer contains a record for each water licence on each Point of Diversion that exists in the province (each Point of Diversion can have multiple licences). For each record, some basic information about the water licence is included
A water supply network optimization model called MODSIM3 is presented as a decision-support tool for aiding city staff in determining how best to utilize and exchange existing and potential water supplies with other users in a river basin. The model is applied to the City of Fort Collins, Colorado, water supply system as a means of determining optimum ways the City can utilize direct flow rights, storage rights, and exchangeable waters from various sources. Results clearly confirm both the benefits of the use of exchanges and the value of MODSIM3 as a water supply planning and management tool. Published in Journal of the American Water Resources Association, volume 22, issue 6, on pages 927 - 940, in 1986.
Province-wide SDE layer displaying water licence points of diversion. This layer contains a record for each Point of Diversion that exists in the province. No information about the water licence(s) is joined.
Dinosaur National Monument, in northwestern Colorado, has become a test case in the establishment of a federal reserved water right to instream flows. For the first time, the Interior Department was forced to rigorously defend its claims in a watershed where the federal government did not control the upstream reaches. Inadequate quantification of minimum flow requirements, court orders, and an apparent Congressional ban on the spending of Water Resources Program funds by the Park Service to quantify its water rights have already placed the Service in a difficult position to protect instream flows for maintaining the ecological integrity of the Monument. As late as 1983, administrators of the Park Service were divided...
Feature class data was designed to support the development of the Environmental Flows Information Toolkit (EFIT) a geospatial application initiated by Texas Parks and Wildlife (TPWD). The EFIT is a web-based tool built around conservation problem solving using innovative data and integrated statistical models. The objective of this application is to identify and prioritize opportunity areas for streamflow conservation within the Great Plains of Texas.
Water rights linking table. To support linking of irrigated lands, water rights, and points of diversion.
Province-wide SDE layer displaying the Freshwater Atlas Stream Network streams that are either reserved or have been designated as Sensitive Streams or Protected Rivers.

Place of Use for water rights. The agricultural and irrigation water rights from OWRD were selected out for this layer by BEF. Not all fields from the original data layer are included. http://www.oregon.gov/owrd/pages/maps/index.aspx#Water_Right_Data_GIS_Themes
Contains approximately 3111 irrigation water right permits on file with the Wyoming State Engineer's Office (SEO). They range in dates from the late 1800s to 2001. The water rights attribution task entails identifying and describing the water rights attached to the irrigated lands polygons. This task is included in the river basin planning process for two reasons. First, knowing the water rights attached to the polygons provides additional understanding of the source of supply and the irrigation systems that deliver water to the polygons. This increased understanding contributes to the accuracy and reliability of the service area designations used to group lands by source of supply. The second reason for the water...
Profound changes are now occurring in the Colorado River Basin. New societal demands for water are on a collision course with vested legal rights and past commitments. The exploitation of fossil fuels in the area poses great problems for the traditional paramount concerns of reclamation and agriculture. The ' law of the river ' is actually a composite of many statutes, compacts, court decisions, contracts, regulations and administrative rulings. Generally speaking, the flow of the Colorado River is divided among users on the basis of beneficial consumptive use. The allocation system operates at four levels: international, interregional, interstate, and intrastate. Legal problems on the river are partially the function...
