      on areas where high-intensity wildfires are probable within the Colorado-Big Thompson Project (C-BT) boundaries through the resources of the Colorado-Big Thompson Headwaters and dramatic climatic and natural events. Over the past century, wildfires communities as notably depicted in Mark Reisner’s book, Cadillac Desert: The American. Wilkinson distributed a map of the area impacted by the project, noting where the proposed reservoir would be constructed (Attachment D). Mr. Wilkinson discussed how the Windy Gap Project would tie into the Colorado Big Thompson Project and gave an update of the current timeline of the project and funding of the project.

The estimated population of Colorado is 5,, as of July , WAEA Annual Meeting, San Francisco, CA Maas, Alexander, Andre Dozier, Dale Manning, and Christopher Goemans, The Effect of Water Institutions on the Value of Water Storage in the West: Lessons from the Colorado-Big Thompson Project.

      In particular, active markets are found in Northern Nevada, California, the service area associated with the Bureau of Reclamation's Colorado-Big Thompson project, and the Lower Rio Grande Valley. There are both demand and supply side drivers of water transfers. These can include. showed no statistically significant trend in the Colorado NM area or in the time series at the park weather station (Figure 4). Future Climate Projections The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has coordinated research groups to project possible future climates under defined greenhouse gas emissions scenarios (IPCC ).

The Colorado-Big Thompson Project collects and delivers on average more thanacre-feet of water each year. Most of this water is the result of melting snow in the upper Colorado River basin west of the Continental Divide. The project transports the water to the East Slope via a mile tunnel beneath.

U.S. Congress, Senate, Synopsis of Report on Colorado-Big Thompson Project, Plan of Development and Cost Estimate Prepared by the Bureau of Reclamation, Department of Interior, 75th Congress, 1st session, J; J. Dille, A Brief History of the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District and the Colorado-Big Thompson Project, (Loveland, Colorado: NCWCD.

The Colorado – Big Thompson Project was originally paid for through a partnership between the federal government and the Northern Water District which received voter approval in to add a 1 mil tax levy to every property within the district’s boundaries.

(If you check your property tax bill, you should see it on there.). The reimbursable costs will be repaid through power revenues and assessments of water users. 11 Gathering and Saving The water-producing area of the Colorado-Big Thompson Project is on the headwaters of the Colorado River near the top of the Continental Divide.

From here the Colorado River starts its long course to the Pacific Ocean. The most active bulletin-board market is the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District (NCWCD), where about 30% of the water allocated to the Colorado-Big Thompson (C-BT) project is utilized.

The global warming of the past 50 years is primarily due to human activities. Global climate is projected to continue to change over this century and beyond. The magnitude of climate change beyond the next few decades depends primarily on.

water coming from the western slope, via the Colorado Big Thompson Project. These watersheds rely on snowmelt, precipitation, streams, and lakes to replenish the larger reservoirs downstream.

The native plants of this area are accustomed to these water levels. to highly reliable flows available via the federal Colorado Big-Thompson project, whereas users in the Southern sub-region rely predominantly on groundwater from the Denver Basin Aquifer.

SPRAT allocates available supplies to existing demands dur-ing each month over the 80 year climate. In climate, to determine the linear trend we plot data values by when they occurred in the past and then determining a “best fit” line through that data.

The slope of the line gives us the trend. Using this method we know that since the contiguous U.S. temperature has warmed at a rate of °F per century. Abstract. The U.S. Geological Survey, in an ongoing cooperative monitoring program with the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District, Bureau of Reclamation, and City of Fort Collins, has collected water-quality data in north-central Colorado since in reservoirs and conveyances, such as canals and tunnels, related to the Colorado–Big Thompson Project, a water-storage, collection, and.

Take the Colorado-Big Thompson Project as an example. When the vast network of reservoirs was originally built in the s to transport water from the state’s wetter Western Slope to the east, agriculture was the majority user of its stored water. Today, 70% of the project’s water is used by municipalities and industry.

The Colorado Big Thompson project lies within the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District, which was formed in the s specifically to contract water from the U.S.

Bureau of Reclamation [Wahl, ]. It is the board of the NCWCD that approves all transfers of CBT water. Shadow Mountain reservoir lies upstream of the glacial limit at about feet, located in a glacial moraine.

It is part of the Colorado-Big Thompson project water collection system and is critical to providing water for consumption, energy, and irrigation needs. It is approximately surface acres with maximum capacity of 17, acre-feet. and the headwaters of the Big Thompson River (on the eastern side of the transcontinental diversion operations).

Snow keeps our planet cooler, significantly affects water resources, and is a revealing indicator of climate change. Forecasting snowfall and determining long-term trends of snow climatology are inherently challenging. Colorado-Big Thompson Project. Work began in and would take nearly 20 years to complete.

Before construction commenced, Reclamation engineers estimated the cost to build the project would be approximately $44 million. On July 5,Northern Water signed a repayment contract with the. Colorado - Colorado - Climate: Colorado may be divided into three climatic regions that largely reflect differences in elevation and proximity to the major mountain ranges: the eastern plains, the Colorado Piedmont, and the Rocky Mountains and the Colorado Plateau in the west.
