LETTER: WGA supports funding for Cooperative Water Program and National Streamflow Information Program


The Western Governors' Association sent a letter on March 12, 2015, to express support for adequate funding of the Cooperative Water Program and National Streamflow Information Program, both administered by the Department of Interior’s U.S. Geological Survey. WGA notes "this data is integral to water supply management decisions for states, utilities, reservoir operators, and farmers ... and particularly useful as drought persists in Nevada, the Pacific Coast states and the Southern Great Plains." The letter was sent to Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Sen. Tom Udall, Rep. Ken Calvert, Rep. Betty McCollum and Suzette Kimball, Acting Director, U.S. Geological Survey. Read, download the Letter
