Squeezing Blood from the Desert - Conference Coverage

Society of Environmental Journalists 2012 Conference Session on Western Water Management

Mega-drought, population growth, aging infrastructure, managed depletion all spell disaster for our nation's water resources. Water management in the Western United States must deal with these issues as well as the politics of agribusiness, domestic energy development, and municipal long-term sustainability issues. Our panel of experts from science and industry will discuss how all of these issues influence the future of our most precious resource...water.

On October 19, 2012, I had the honor and privilege of hosting four amazing experts during a conference session where they discussed with me the most crucial issues facing Western Water Management.  

Kristen Averyt, Associate Director for Science (Acting), Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences, University of Colorado Boulder
Sherry Stephens, Executive Aide, High Plains Underground Water Conservation District #1, Lubbock, Texas
Sharlene Leurig, Senior Manager, Water and Insurance Programs, Ceres
Judy Reeves, Senior Hydrogeologist, Cirrus Associates
