Reclamation is the largest wholesale water supplier and the second largest producer of hydroelectric power in the United States, with operations and facilities in the 17 Western States. Its facilities also provide substantial flood control, recreation, and fish and wildlife benefits. The purpose of this site is to present matters of public interest regarding the work that we at Reclamation are doing in all these areas. You may post comments, but please note this is a moderated site and not a public forum. We expect comments to follow the conventions of polite discourse. We reserve the right to delete comments that:

* contain vulgar language, personal attacks of any kind, or offensive terms
that target specific ethnic or racial groups

* promote services or products (non-commercial links that are relevant to the
posted comments are acceptable)

* are far off-topic

* make unsupported accusations

* make threats against Reclamation or DOI employees or facilities

We don’t edit comments to remove objectionable content, so please ensure that your comments contain none of the above.

We reserve the right to block specific visitors to our social media sites from commenting who do not comply with this policy.

We generally do not post responses to comments on our social media sites, however we encourage you to submit any comments, questions, concerns or suggestions though our “Contact Us” page so that we may respond in a timely and efficient manner.
