Distribution of groundwater recharge
The primary objective of this study was to determine the average annual net rate and areal variation of natural recharge to the Ogallala Formation in the Northern High Plains of Colorado. This unconfined aquifer underlies approximately 9300 square miles in northeastern Colorado and is capable of yielding large amounts of water to wells. Natural recharge to the Ogallala Formation is derived from precipitation falling within the basin. However, none of the previous investigations has attempted to describe the areal variation of groundwater recharge a Assuming that the Ogallala Formation was in a ...
