Here’s the release from the Bureau of Reclamation (Marlon Duke):

On Friday, February 1, Bureau of Reclamation Commissioner Brenda Burman will conduct a media availability to discuss the status of Colorado River Basin Drought Contingency Plans.

Recognizing growing risks in the basin, Reclamation and the basin states have worked for several years to develop meaningful drought contingency plans (DCPs) for the upper and lower Colorado River basins. The governor’s representatives from each state endorsed a Reclamation goal to complete DCPs by the end of 2018. The four Upper Basin States approved their DCP in December 2018. During last December’s Colorado River Water Users Association Conference, Burman set a January 31, 2019, deadline for completion of all DCPs.

WHO: Brenda Burman, Reclamation Commissioner; Brent Rhees, Reclamation Regional Director – Upper Colorado Region; Terry Fulp, Reclamation Regional Director – Lower Colorado Region

WHEN: 9 a.m. MST, Friday, February 1, 2019
