Coal extraction has a long and storied history in Colorado. The estimated value of Colorado coal production in was $ million. Although coal production slightly increased in , the overall decreasing trend in coal production is due primarily to the nationwide increased use of natural gas and renewable energy. The state fell from the [ ]. Hydrologic information and analysis are needed to aid in decisions to lease Federally owned coal and for the preparation of the necessary Environmental Assessments and Impact Study Reports. This need has become even more critical with the enactment of the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of (Public Law ). This report, one in a series of nationwide coal province reports.

A nationwide need for information characterizing hydrologic conditions in mined and potential mine areas has become paramount with the enactment of the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of This report, one in a series covering the coal provinces nationwide, presents information thematically by describing single hydrologic topics through the use of brief texts and accompanying. Hydrology is the study of water storage and movement in the Earth system, including the effects of hydrologic fluxes on the distribution of energy, chemicals, and sediments. Our hydrology research program encompasses surface hydrology and crustal hydrogeology.
