Groundwater Study Updates


Public and domestic water supplies in Elbert County rely on groundwater withdrawals from five bedrock aquifers in the Denver Basin; those include Upper Dawson, Lower Dawson, Denver, Arapahoe, and Laramie-Fox Hills.   The USGS, in cooperation with the Elbert County Board of County Commissioners, began a study in 2015 to monitor groundwater levels within the county.  The purpose of the study is to report on groundwater levels measured and analyze trends and changes.

Discrete groundwater levels were measured at 50 wells within Elbert County.
