1 Preface <br />The Colorado Water Conservation Board, under contract to the Bureau of Reclamation, has <br />prepared Floodplain Information Reports for four subbasins of the Upper Colorado River Basin. <br />The reports have been divided into four separate volumes, one for each subbasin: Volume 1, the <br />Yampa River (from Craig, Colorado downstream to Dinosaur National Monument); Volume 2, <br />the White River (from Rio Blanco Lake downstream to the Utah stateline); Volume 3, the <br />Gunnison River (from Delta, Colorado downstream to its mouth); and Volume 4, the Colorado <br />' River mainstem (from Rifle, Colorado downstream to the Utah stateline). Figure I on the next <br />page shows the four stream reaches of critical habitat in the upper Colorado River Basin. <br />' This Floodplain Information Report, Volume 3, presents the results of a study for the delineation <br />of the 50 -year and 100 -year floodplains on the reach of the Gunnison River from Delta, Colorado <br />' downstream to the confluence. The reach is part of the designated critical habitat in the Upper <br />Colorado River basin. The critical habitat was designated by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. <br />The report was prepared to provide floodplain information for the Gunnison River to agencies, <br />municipalities, development entities and private citizens for use in planning and in meeting <br />Section 7 and NEPA- related requirements regarding the endangered fishes of the Upper Colorado <br />River basin. <br />n <br />
