The 'Stations' CDSS Online Tool has been rebuilt and is available in beta release. This is the final major CDSS Online Tool to be converted to the modernized web platform. Note that 'Stations' includes structures within Colorado that have telemetry - primarily river gages, large diversions, and reservoir elevations.
Several examples have been created that show how to use web services in several applications. See examples here.
New Division 2 (Arkansas River Basin) Straightline Diagrams
Coming soon. As part of ArkDSS, new Arkansas River and tributary straightline diagrams are being developed. When completed in the following weeks, the new diagrams will be posted on DWR's Laserfiche and on the DWR Division 2 website.
A new version of TSTool (13.02.00) has been released. This version is required for web services to function since the URL has changed and also includes other minor enhancements and fixes.
1) Addition of a “crop stress coefficients” table in the input data page
A stress coefficient table has been added (by year and by crop) to the Lease Fallow Tool (LFT) input data page that can be applied to potential evapo-transpiration (PET) rates (using the “update PET” button). In water use analyses especially in Division 3, aerial photos have been used to identify alfalfa or grass fields that clearly received less than a full water supply. Limiting PET rates can be important for evaluating use of un-metered wells or when there are uncertainties such as with canal losses or ditch proportioning.
2) Correction of a problem with crop rooting depths
