The Mid-Pacific Region
Message from Mid-Pacific Regional Director David Murillo
|Mid-Pacific Regional Director David Murillo|
The Mid-Pacific Region’s 2013 Annual Report of Accomplishments shares the highlights of this year’s achievements by our dedicated members throughout the Region. This report reflects the success of our mission statement: “The mission of the Bureau of Reclamation is to manage, develop, and protect water and related resources in an environmentally and economically sound manner in the interest of the American public.”
There are many challenges we will face in the future—short- and long-term issues in California, and the bordering areas of Oregon and Nevada. Some water supplies are no longer reliable and some systems are environmentally unsustainable. We will continue to work together with our partners on water supply and environmental improvements in the Region.
Long-term solutions are essential to the health of state and local economies, natural resources and the environment. The Mid-Pacific Region remains committed to meeting future needs and improving ongoing projects and programs, while dealing with diverse and complex issues brought on by both a changing climate and competing public demands.
Our goal is strongly focused on the priorities of protecting human health and safety, fulfilling our commitment to our customers and to the public, and continuing to cultivate relationships with our colleagues, stakeholders and partner agencies that are so crucial to the continued success of the Mid-Pacific Region.
