Abstract
This report details work performed and results obtained in a study of the water management aspects of oil shale mining and retorting in the Piceance Creek Basin. Three specific sites were investigated, and optimal water management systems for both conventional and in situ extraction processes were generated. Water-related legal and environmental constraints on development were identified and the water management schemes were developed in compliance with these regulations. Limitations on shale oil production implied by limited water supplies were evaluated. Potential basin-wide effects of development were evaluated using a computer model, and mitigation strategies were developed. Recommendations for additional investigations and analyses are presented. Volume I contains the main text.
