The Yampa and White River Basins are key areas in the Nation's search for untaped resources to supplement increasing energy demands. The basins contain vast beds of low-sulfur, strippable coal that potentially will support a large number of coal-fired powerplants as well as some of the richest oil shale deposits in the United States. However, conversion of these energy resources into commercially usable power and fuel is expected will have considerable impact on water resources in the Yampa and White River Basins. Decreased flows from energy developments will accompany increased salt and sediment loadings. Water quality monitoring needs in the basins are addressed with priority listings of parameters for measurement to detect changes in water quality as a result of energy resource development.
