Not sure I agree - I-70 through Glenwood Canyon was completed in 1992 - but the EIS was done in the 1970s.
Drought, wildfires, monsoons, and...mudflows? Yep, mudslides are a result of climate change, too. And all of these catastrophic events are impacting our water. Learn more: nbcnews.com/news/us-news/mud…

I hope they thank E. C. LaRue!
Join @USGS and @usbr tomorrow at 12 ET/9 PT to celebrate 100 years of data collection at USGS streamgage 09380000 Colorado River at #LeesFerry, AZ. This virtual media event will recap its history and contributions to Western water availability and quality. teams.microsoft.com/l/meetup…

My colleague @ColoradoClimate, Peter Goble, did an update of the total number of 90° days that have been observed around the state. Also included is the average number of 90° days for that location. Biggest wow for me? 21 days of 90° or higher in Steamboat. 😯 #cowx

It will be interesting to watch what happens to this large collection of adult toys as Lake Powell drops another 40' (Wahweap webcam).

At the bottom of John Fleck's latest blog post, he looked at the latest soil moisture map for the Colorado River Basin, showing good levels down in Arizona but bad across the Upper Basin: "I cringed." inkstain.net/fleck/2021/09/d…

June-August (2021), CO ranked much above average for temp. and mostly below average for precip. CO ranked 124/127 for warmest summers and 33/127 for driest. The E plains showed to be the driest while W/SW CO were above normal for precip. from an active monsoon season. #COwx

Helpful @waltonwater piece on @usbr #ColoradoRiver 24-month studies - how they're done, what they mean. Including @bradudall questions about whether they overestimate water supply: circleofblue.org/2021/world/…

In 1988 selenium in the Gunnison River was considered one of those forever and insoluble problems - NOPE!
The Lower Gunnison River reached an important milestone this summer. During the June 2021 hearing, the Colorado Water Quality Control Commission deemed the Gunnison River in compliance with aquatic life standards for dissolved selenium. deltacountyindependent.com/n…

Hard to express how useful this book has been in preparation for graduate school. For those looking for insight into what all the talk of the Colorado River is about, I highly recommend this read by @jfleck and @R_EricKuhn as a starting point.

3’ could make a difference between a Tier 1 and Tier 2 shortage in WY 2023. Plus this is system water it’s not ICS or a DCP contribution.
“partnership…USBR, Metropolitan Water, Central Arizona Project, SNWA and Palo Verde Irrigation District is expected to conserve up to 180,000 acre-feet of water over the next three years, amounting to about a 3-foot increase in Lake Mead’s water level” mwdh2o.com/newsroom-press-re…
