Hydrology and Water Reports

The OSE Technical Division Hydrology Reports (TDH) include many in-depth analyses of limited geographic areas prepared for specific water right applications, legal or water basin problems or concerns. Additionally, this list includes some Special Projects Division (SPD) reports and some unnumbered reports. The list is, first alphabetical by author, followed by the reports by that author arranged by availability.

We are in the process of digitizing the reports. As new ones are scanned, reports will be uploaded with the corresponding report titles. Please contact the OSE/ISC Webmaster if you are lookiing for a non-scanned report and they will collaborate with the OSE Librarian to make the report available.
