Role

The Laboratory Shops construct and fabricate custom-designed, specialized laboratory and field test equipment and instrumentation in support of Reclamation's technology development program in Water Resources, Environmental Resources, and Infrastructure.  The shop constructs both functional scale hydraulic models used for site-specific problem solving and applied research, and small-scale architectural models for display purposes.

In addition, laboratory shop personnel provide shop services to other Reclamation entities in the Denver Office and in the field, such as demonstration models for the Environmental Education Program, emergency repairs, fabrication of devices for immediate program needs, shipping crates for test samples, test equipment, and other building maintenence support.
