U.S. Geological Survey New Service

The U.S. Geological Survey launched a new site in August designed to provide a common repository for the large amount of water quality and sampling data that has been collected over the years by government entities, water districts, and energy companies. This common data repository will provide an invaluable contribution to the planning, monitoring, conservation, and management of water resources in Colorado. The URL to the main website is http://rmgsc.cr.usgs.gov/cwqdr/index.shtml and the one specific to the Southwest is http://rmgsc.cr.usgs.gov/cwqdr/Southwest/.
