The WRRC had the good fortune of holding its conference on February 1, one day after the Arizona State Legislature signed legislation agreeing to the Drought Contingency Plan (DCP). Leslie Meyers, Area Manager, Phoenix Area Office, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, addressed the recent signing of the DCP as the 2019 WRRC Annual Conference keynote speaker. In her keynote address, Meyers congratulated legislators and the state for "pulling together for a statewide plan." Meyers also noted that while the Arizona passage of the DCP is "a tremendous step forward," the DCP is still incomplete. "Close isn't done," Meyers said. For more of her remarks, see Meyers's presentation and others on our WRRC website.
