View the Elevation of Guanella Reservoir

With the completion of the Guanella Reservoir, by our best growth and water use projections, Golden now has a secure 100-year water supply.  The reservoir is located on the West fork of Clear Creek near Empire (just this side of Berthoud Pass).  One of the reservoir’s unusual feature’s is its use of alluvial storage, meaning that some of our water in the reservoir is actually stored underground.  You can see the elevation of the water in the alluvium (user name is Golden and password is water) and the elevation of the reservoir itself (8620 is full).
