Abstract: UMass WRRC will hold a Water Managers Workshop in Amherst, Massachusetts in July 2012. The workshop will build strong collaborations between water managers across the Commonwealth, academic researchers, and the regional USGS office. The workshop will focus on identifying data and analysis requirements for assessing future water needs and availability across the Commonwealth. Topics of discussion will include translation of existing data to water managers in a useful format, how best to address sustainability and resilience questions for various service areas, development of integrated water resources management plans, and identification of potential solutions to future water availability, sustainability, and resilience issues. We will seek to jointly pursue funding opportunities to address identified data collection, analysis, and communication needs.
