Conference May 20 organized by my University of New Mexico water colleagues, especially Kerry Howe at UNM’s Center for Water and the Environment and Adrian Oglesby at the Utton Center:
The drought has eased somewhat in New Mexico but might be returning, and uncertainties regarding our future remain. This 1-day conference will focus on federal and state institutions that manage and control our water supply, and the constraints that are imposed by physical realities and regulatory requirements. Speakers and participants will explore alternative approaches to minimize these constraints to improve our overall water resource management. The conference will feature opening remarks from Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham and presentations from several federal and state institutions.
