Weekly Wave, vol. 8, no. 1, Water Resources Research Center, Tucson, AZ, January 10, 2020
We are very excited to announce that the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation Commissioner Brenda Burman will provide the luncheon keynote presentation at the UArizona Water Resources Research Center 2020 Conference, Water at the Crossroads: The Next 40 Years. Burman has more than 25 years of experience working on western issues. Serving as Commissioner since 2017, she led the Bureau during the development of the Drought Contingency Plans for the Colorado River Basin states. She brings a wealth of knowledge about water issues in the West and in Arizona in particular. Among her many accomplishments, she served as legislative counsel for water and energy for Senator Jon Kyl, was the Director of Water Strategy at the Salt River Project, and was the Senior Water Policy Administrator at The Nature Conservancy. Her talk, The Colorado River and Arizona's Water Management, will set the stage for afternoon conference panels, which will focus on future choices to ensure water resilience. Registration is open for the conference, which will be held on Friday, March 27, 2020, at the Black Canyon Conference Center (9440 N 25th Ave, Phoenix, AZ).
