Earlier this month, DRBC’s Manager of Water Resource Operations Amy Shallcross, P.E. presented at the Pa. American Water Works Association (PA-AWWA) Southeast District’s annual spring conference.
The theme was “Hot Topics in the Water Industry.” Ms. Shallcross presented on DRBC Water Resource Management (pdf 4.6 MB), providing an overview of the commission and the complexity of how to manage the DRB’s competing water resource needs. Her presentation focused on how the basin’s flow management regimes and reservoir storage for both drought and flood mitigation expanded over time. Ms. Shallcross also summarized the numerous issues that water resource managers face today and how to plan for future uncertainties.
PA-AWWA provides resources and leadership to the Pa. water community; members include government and industry professionals, utility operators, educators, scientists, and consultants. This conference was held jointly with the Eastern Section of the Water Works Operators Association of PA.
