INTERA’s Courtney Black, PE, Senior Water Resources Engineer, provided her expertise in water resources planning to support the Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB) in developing the 2020 Drought Management Planning: A Guide for Water Providers. The guide, which is an update to the original document developed in 2010, aims to assist Colorado municipalities and other local water providers with drought management planning. The new guidance reflects current drought mitigation measures and response planning steps, based on lessons learned from both planning efforts and droughts that have occurred since 2010.
