Climate Impacts to Water
January 25-26, 2017
Skamania Lodge, Stevenson, WA

This conference should be of interest to those managing water in agricultural, irrigation district managers, and storm water planners. The common theme will be creating a dialogue amongst the communities that use and value the regions water supply and water quality. The future food production and processing systems in the region are expected to be challenged by water supply due to decreased snow pack and issues associated with water access and rights. In addition, excess water from heavy rain events and untimely precipitation are expected to cause issues with water quality and flood events. These uncertainties make it very difficult for the agriculture, water managers, and storm water communities to make decisions.
