Effects of conjunctive use on streamflow at the Tamarack State Wildlife Area, northeastern Colorado
The Tamarack Recharge Project in northeastern Colorado is intended to augment the streamflow of the South Platte River by 10,000 acre-feet between April and September to increase aquatic habitat for four federally threatened or endangered bird and fish species in Nebraska. The project goal is to retime surface water flows by pumping unappropriated alluvial groundwater into a recharge pond where it infiltrates and returns to the river at critical low flow periods. Retimed surface water flow will help maintain critical habitat for native aquatic species by increasing streamflow without harming ...
