2018 WWA Stakeholder Meeting

October 9, 2018

We will welcome two guest speakers, Bill McCormick, Chief of the Colorado Dam Safety Officeand Dr. James Prairie, a hydrologist with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation at CADSWES. Each will give a talk on current projects with WWA that illustrate the entrainment of science into the management decisions. Mr. McCormick will review the Colorado-New Mexico Regional Extreme Precipitation Study and considerations of PMP (probable maximum precipitation) in a changing climate. Dr. Prairie will discuss a new project with WWA synthesizing the latest in climate and hydrologic science for the management of the Colorado River. 

We will also provide an overview and discuss current and upcoming WWA projects with a particular focus on the 2018 drought experienced in our region.
