Webinar interest in the Pecos Basin Study 20 November

Hello All,

Thank you for your interest in the Pecos Basin Study. 

WEBINAR – November 20
As discussed at our October 25 meeting, we have scheduled a webinar to review in more detail the study’s modeling work, associated inputs and relevant outcomes.  We had hoped to send a doodle poll for possible dates next week, however, given our team’s calendars that unfortunately was not possible.  Please join us for the webinar on Tuesday, November 20 from 9 to 11am.

Emma Kelly from Reclamation will send a follow up email with instructions on how to join the webinar.  Please let us know if you would like to receive notes / supplemental information after the webinar, whether or not you attend.  Given that we have scheduled during a holiday week, we will consider a repeat webinar after the holiday if we receive enough interest.  Please let us know.

Please remember to send us your comments on the draft by November 21.   We are particularly interested in your thoughts on the sections regarding the purpose and need, irrigation district descriptions, and practical actions.  We welcome comments on the technical work as well, however, please know that the modeling effort is complete.  That said, your suggestions may help clarify how we report on that work or provide recommendations for future modeling efforts.

Best wishes to you all,


Thank you all for being at the meeting and providing your insights into the Pecos River Basin Study. This modeling study will help examine a range of possible futures with the changing conditions in the Pecos River Basin and what effect possible actions would have on water supply and demand. 

We will be sending out a doodle poll shortly to determine the best time to have the follow up webinar that can explain results in detail--we hope to have this webinar the week of November 12th.

I have attached:
1) The powerpoint presentation we provided (we will go over the more detailed results in the webinar--we are incorporating the zeroing out ESA analyses now.
2) The notes from the meeting
3) The list of potential actions--with actions suggested in the meeting --please rank these actions and suggest other actions and send it to me  by November 21
4) The word document of the draft so far with the descriptions of the districts and strategies --please edit this and provide comments to me  by November 21

Again, thank you very much for all your work on this!  We hope to make this a good report that could set the stage for planning and future actions.
