FEDMAP Project Summary
Central Colorado Assessment, CR MRT
To provide a comprehensive geologic information base in the central Colorado urban corridor for addressing the region's land-use issues.
In order to plan for responsible land use in the central Colorado urban corridor and large areas of Federal and private land in the Colorado Front Range, it is essential to understand the mineral and energy resources, geologic hazards, long-term effects of forest fires on erosion, effects of increased recreational land use, and quantity and quality of ground- and surface-water resources of the region. The comprehensive geoscience data and interpretations provided by this project will be used by federal, state, and local land management entities to make informed land-use decisions.
