Georgetown Divide Public Utilities District Stream Gaging and Water Rights Reporting

 

Georgetown Divide Public Utilities District has had a long-standing relationship with the United States Geological Survey (USGS) to monitor and maintain two gages on Pilot Creek. Both of the gages provided real time data to the USGS website. The ECORP Consulting team took over the gaging services. Within a few days, the team replaced the USGS equipment and was able to transmit real time data to a password-protected website. Georgetown Divide Public Utilities District holds multiple permitted and Pre-1914 water rights on Pilot Creek and its tributaries. ECORP developed a methodology for identifying the usage of those rights to satisfy the State Water Resources Control Board requirements for online reporting. ECORP is also assisting the District with licensing some of those rights.
