Terrance (Terry) Fulp, Ph.D., is Regional Director of the Bureau of Reclamation’s Lower Colorado Region.

Headquartered in Boulder City, Nevada, the Lower Colorado Region is responsible for the operation of the Reclamation’s water and power facilities on the last 700 miles of the Colorado River, from Lee Ferry in northern Arizona to the Mexican border. Fulp, a Reclamation employee since 1989, oversees programs that implement the Secretary of the Interior’s water master functions on the lower Colorado River, including water delivery, accounting, and contracting. Fulp is also responsible for the Region’s water conservation program and the Lower Colorado River Multi-Species Conservation Program, a multi-agency effort to conserve and work towards the recovery of endangered species and protect and maintain wildlife habitat on the lower Colorado River.

Fulp is actively involved in Colorado River operations and management issues, working closely with other federal and state agencies and a broad range of stakeholders on issues related to management and use of the river. Prior to his appointment as Acting Regional Director, he led the successful Basin-wide effort to develop additional operational guidelines for Lake Powell and Lake Mead to address the impacts of long-term drought in the Basin.

Fulp holds a Ph.D. in Mathematical and Computer Sciences from the Colorado School of Mines, a M.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of Colorado, a M.S. in Geophysics from Stanford University, and a B.S. in Earth Sciences from the University of Tulsa.
