Abstract

Water-level measurements were made in more than 600 wells during January 1977 in the northern High Plains of Colorado which includes about 9,500 square miles. Most of these wells were irrigation wells, but several stock and government-owned wells were also measured, especially in areas where there is little irrigation. Changes in water levels from January 1976 to January 1977 ranged from a rise of about 12 feet (3.7 meters) to a decline of about 10 feet (3 meters), both of which occurred in Kit Carson County. Measurements for the four preceding winters also are included to serve as references illustrating declining or rising water levels. (Woodard-USGS)
