Join us on January 22nd at 3:30 pm to hear Dagmar Llewellyn from the Water Management Division at the Bureau of Reclamation present:

“Overview of Rio Grande/Rio Bravo System and River Management Challenges”

ABSTRACT: Dagmar will present an overview of the Rio Grande/Rio Bravo, from its headwaters in the mountains of Colorado to its terminus at the Gulf of Mexico in Texas, along with a discussion of the water management challenges in the basin due to human alteration of the river and extraction of its water, and from our warming climate. She will also describe, from a broad perspective, the diversity of projects underway to address these challenges, as well as additional research that is needed. In November, 2019, she gave this presentation to a board meeting of the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine in Washington DC, where it kicked off a day of comparison of river management challenges in different US river basins.
