    About 20 percent of the Colorado lakes and reservoirs that have been tested by the state contain mercury-tainted fish. “It seems it’s everywhere,” said Gong, a Loveland resident.   That might not seem significant, but reservoirs are generally managed to store winter runoff for use in the summer. Therefore, the water levels can fluctuate dramatically. They aren't always the pretty picture in the Chamber of Commerce brochure--which are usually taken when the reservoirs are full. Stream water quality in Colorado varies.

    Thousands of people each year enjoy being on or around Colorado's lakes and reservoirs. Water in Colorado works hard to provide habitat for wildlife adjacent to the waters edge, swimming, fishing, boating, bird watching, and even serving as a drinking water source for towns and cities and irrigation water for farms and ranches throughout our state. Higganum Reservoir is a acre (13 ha) man-made body of water impounding Ponset Brook in the town of Haddam, Connecticut. It is the primary feature of Higganum Reservoir State Park. Formed by construction of an earth dam in , the reservoir was built to provide water power for the Higganum Manufacturing Company, a maker of plows and other farm on: Haddam, Connecticut.

This book is a very good resource for Colorado Lakes, perhaps the only one like it. It's heavy on the fishing portion, of course, but still very useful for non-fishermen/women. The only real disappointment so far, is that there is no overall, statewide map showing the relative location of the individual lakes/5(7).

We incorporated in total of the largest lakes and largest reservoirs selected from GLWD and GRanD into the global model setup (), and we georeferenced them to the GloFAS river ICOLD does not provide geographical coordinates of dams (Lehner et al., ), the dataset was less useful for our GLWD provides only shoreline polygons of lakes and reservoirs Cited by:   A reservoir is the same thing as a lake in many peoples' minds.

But, in fact, a reservoir is a manmade lake that is created when a dam is built on a river. River water backs up behind the dam creating a reservoir.

The largest reservoir entirely contained in Colorado is Blue Mesa Reservoir, with a capacity ofacre-feet ( km 3). The total storage of the reservoirs on this list is 3, acre-feet ( km 3), although not all is allocated for use by Colorado. An enlargeable map of the State of Colorado.

The following is a partial alphabetical list of lakes and reservoirs in the U.S. State of Colorado. Most of the larger lakes in Colorado are either reservoirs or dam-enhanced natural lakes.Comparison of –18 water years and historical water-quality data, Colorado River Mainstem and major tributaries to the Colorado River, Colorado Definition of terms Concern levels - The three-tiered concern levels, defined below, are provided to inform watershed users to potential impairments within specific stream segments.Water quality is defined in terms of the chemical, physical, and biological content of water.

The water quality of rivers and lakes changes with the seasons and geographic areas, even when there is no pollution present. There is no single measure that constitutes good water quality.
