This is the second edition of the directory; the first was published in 1999 (Open-File Report 99-9). The goal of the current edition was to update existing entries and to add information from organizations not previously included in the directory.
The objective of this directory was to provide the people of Colorado, as well as industry, land and resource managers, and government agencies the ability to locate and share the water quality data needed to make informed decisions about water quality in our state. What remains of value is that there is documentation of water data at various agencies that is not electronic in nature and, thus, not findable through public databases.
