Upper Black Squirrel Creek
Ground Water Management District.

It's not a UFO!

Residents of central El Paso County may notice an unusual sight in the skies in June, a low-altitude helicopter towing a large hexagonal frame flying over their area. Officials at the Upper Black Squirrel Creek Ground Water Management District (UBSCGWMD) say this unique equipment is simply part of a project to map groundwater aquifers and subsurface geology in the district.

Watch here for updates as the project progresses

  • May 31 The project has been delayed a few days, with the crew now arriving June 4th and the helicopter arriving June 7th. We are coordinating resources with other states on this project in order to save money. So a weather delay in another area creates a delay for us. The same will be true for other areas if we encounter a weather delay here.
