Web-Based Decision Support System for the Upper Colorado River Basins

In an effort to improve the coordination and transparency of water management operations within the Upper Colorado River basin, Eastern Colorado Area Office (ECAO) is proposing to develop a Web-Based Decision Support System (DSS). The DSS would enable real-time sharing of a visual representation of the Upper Colorado River as it responds to actual and anticipated reservoir releases, diversions and return flows. The proposed DSS would provide a tool for immediately assessing and visually displaying the aggregate effects of operational changes at key locations within the basin.
