Reclamation to Hold Truckee Basin Study Technical Webinar Workshop

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The Bureau of Reclamation will hold a webinar workshop with the Truckee Basin Study Technical Advisory Group on June 24. This is the first of multiple technical workshops planned to introduce and discuss the technical assessments being performed for the Truckee Basin Study and will focus on approaches for estimating water supply availability in the Truckee River Basin under both current and future conditions, especially considering climate change impacts.

The workshop will be held on:
Monday, June 24, 2013, 1 p.m.
Go to: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/244020463596874496
and follow the instructions for connecting to the web-based meeting.

Advanced  registration for the webinar is required via the above link. Following the workshop, the material presented will be posted for download on the website www.usbr.gov/mp/TBStudy.

The basin study seeks to identify and address potential imbalances between water supply and demand for Truckee Basin water users, and is being conducted as a collaborative effort between Reclamation and four non-federal cost share partners (Placer County Water Agency, Tahoe Regional Planning Agency, Truckee Meadows Water Authority and Truckee River Flood Management Authority).

The Technical Advisory Group is comprised of technical experts, stakeholders and members of the public who have an interest in the basin study. Each workshop will focus on a different technical aspect or component of the basin study process, including approaches for determining water supply, water demand, assessment of risk and reliability and strategies for managing risks or imbalances.

The workshops are open to all interested parties and members of the public. For questions or additional information, please contact Arlan Nickel at 916-978-5061 or Shelley Mcginnis at 916-978-4349.
