Evaluation of capabilities and Needs for a Joint Surface Water--Ground Water Decision Support System on the Lower Platte River Basin
What are the challenges that the Lower Platte River Basin presents for Reclamation's water resource managers?
Need and Benefit
The Lower Platte River Basin presents a unique set of challenges for Reclamation's water resources managers--particularly as they relate to the interactions between surface water, ground water and water quality. Stakeholders and other partnering entities are very interested in tools which may be presently available--or might be developed to deal with these issues.
This scoping proposal will evaluate these needs and present the results in the form of a report with recommendations.
Decisionmaking on the Lower Platte system involves distribution of releases from upstream Reclamation reserovirs and dealing with long time stakeholders--which is inherently a Reclamation responsibility
