WEST is a proud sponsor at the 2019 USCID Conference, taking place in Reno, Nevada.
The conference theme is “Basin Water Management – Challenges in Water Management at the Basin Scale”.
Increased scarcity of water supplies and competing uses and demands for water in the Western United States requires changes to water planning and management in order to protect our water resources and effectively sustain water uses on the basin scale. Sustainable basin water management, a challenge even in normal hydrologic conditions with plentiful water availability, is becoming even more difficult for all water users. Water for agricultural use continues to compete with needs of other water users, threatening our food security. As such, solutions to these challenges must be approached comprehensively and often require infrastructure, management and policy changes.
