Division of Water Resources (DWR):
State Engineer's Office
Our mission is to administer the waters of the State to maximize lawful beneficial use, ensure that dams and water wells are properly constructed and safe, and provide information about water resources to the public.
Division of Water Resources


The Division of Water Resources (DWR) well metering program is critical to the administration of Colorado water rights and interstate compacts.
In river basins where the surface water has been over appropriated such that well administration is required to protect senior water rights, the State Engineer has adopted rules that govern the use and/or measurement of groundwater diversions.
The Well Metering Program is required to enforce those rules.

There are, currently, four areas subject to such rules: South Platte, Republican, Arkansas and Rio Grande basins.
The well metering teams in each of the four basins work independently of one another as the rules vary slightly among the four basins.
There is, however, a single well measurement and public tester certification standard implemented by the Office of the State Engineer that provides consistent guidance to each of the four teams.

The well metering teams report administratively to the Division Engineer, who reports directly to the State Engineer.
The Division Engineer has statutory authority for the general administration of water rights in their respective river basins, including the administration of groundwater.
The Chief of Hydrography/Well Metering, who reports to the Deputy State Engineer, has senior staff authority for the management and administration of the hydrography and well metering programs.
Each of the four well metering teams are supervised by a Groundwater Commissioner, who has delegated statutory authority from the Division Engineer for the administration of groundwater rights and delegated staff authority from the Chief of Hydrography/Well Metering to oversee the well meter testing and certification of public testers in their river basin.
Depending on the complexity and geographic area, each team also has one or more Deputy Groundwater Commissioners, Groundwater Engineering Technicians, or Groundwater Engineering Assistants.
