Water quality information available at COGCC site

Water quality information assembled by the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission now is available to the public through a new tool on the agency’s website,, according to a news release.

The database of water samples allows the public to view water quality for 450 wells or other locations, including springs, throughout Colorado since Jan. 1, 2011. Additional sampling data from previous years as well as data from the voluntary groundwater monitoring program will be added by the end of 2012, according to the release.

To use the database, click the link marked “Water Sampling Data Now Available” on the home page. From there, click on GIS Online link or on the “Go to Map” link associated with the “Water/Gas Sample Data.” After a map loads, users can zoom into an area of interest, check the box on the left-hand side marked “Water Gas Sample Sites,” then click the box labeled “Sites w/Lab Data.”
