Water Resources Research Center,
Leslie Meyers, Area Manager for the Phoenix Area Office of the U.S. Department of Interior's Bureau of Reclamation (BOR), will offer the keynote presentation at the WRRC's upcoming conference Arizona Runs on Water: Scarcity, Challenges, and Community-based Solutions. Ms. Meyers is very active in the oversight of Reclamation's projects in Arizona and in statewide water resource issues with a wide range of constituents ranging from Native American tribes to agricultural and municipal water users. Her presentation will highlight the Lower Basin and Intra-Arizona Drought Contingency Plan (DCP) as well as other Arizona BOR programs and priorities. This is an exciting time to hear her thoughts and perspectives because it will be only one day after the deadline set by Commissioner Brenda Burman for the states to complete their work on the DCP. The WRRC conference will be held at the Black Canyon Conference Center, 9440 N 25th Ave. Don't miss the opportunity for online registration, which lasts until 5:00 p.m. on Friday, January 25th.
