The Upper Rio Grande (URG) River Basin extends from the headwaters in Colorado to the USGS streamflow gage Rio Grande near Fort Quitman, Texas, and includes both native water and transmountain water from the Colorado River Basin. Because of surface-water allotment issues, input from various sources of water (native and transmountain), numerous reservoirs, and complex stream-aquifer relations, operating and planning water operations in the URG Basin are difficult.

Gain an understanding of surface-water flow withinthe URG Basin through development of a basin-wide, interagency water-operations model, which will be used to:
