Eagle River Water Rights Operations Model

Lynker, together with Leonard Rice Engineers, developed a water resources systems model to represent water rights, reservoirs, streamflow conditions and operations by various municipalities in the Eagle River Basin of West-Slope Colorado.  The model provides water resources decision support for the major water providers and users in the basin.   Water rights, key diversions, ski resort snowmaking, reservoir operations, instream flows reaches and other factors were studied in detail.  Model results have been used to guide infrastructure and resiliency planning as well as climate change impact analyses.
