Shaden Musleh brings expertise in water resources engineering, planning, and management, specifically in the areas of water rights in the western U.S., surface water and groundwater modeling, and decision support systems for water planning. He develops cooperative solutions to water resources problems in multi-party settings and leads large-scale projects focused on solving complex water resources challenges. As an expert in water rights in the western U.S., Shaden has worked on numerous water right court cases in Colorado (in multiple river basins) that cover plans for augmentation, change of use, recharge, exchange, storage, substitute water supply plans and other aspects of water rights. He is experienced in evapotranspiration/consumptive use analysis, hydrologic/hydrogeologic investigations, water availability analysis, exchange capacity assessment, water demand/supply analysis, and surface water and groundwater modeling.  Shaden also contributes to projects involving water allocation modeling, climate change investigations, water conservation, groundwater availability, aquifer storage and recovery, hydraulic modeling, and conjunctive management of surface water and groundwater.
