The Colorado River Basin drains parts of( Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico,(Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming and is vital to (the economy, culture, and ecology of the region. Aquifers underlying the Colorado River basin provide, in addition to other uses, about 875,000 acre-ft per year of fresh water to the nearly40 million inhabitants of the region and about 2 million acre-ft per year of fresh water to agriculture for irrigation. The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with 12 stakeholders, monitors routine groundwater levels in about 110 wells and project-focused groundwater levels in another 330 wells throughout the Colorado River Basin to inform short and long-term water resource planning decisions.
