Committee Charge from Resolution 2019-8:

  • Provide input to inform DRBC’s ongoing 2060 Water Resources Planning Study and related models that have climate-dependent inputs.
  • Develop science-based future scenarios for the Delaware River Basin as they relate to climate change.
  • Define the scope and support the development of a comprehensive basin-wide climate impact study to be undertaken collaboratively by DRBC and other DRB partners. This study may be performed in phases and should address climate-related threats and influences potentially affecting the basin’s water supply, water quality and watersheds.
  • Support an effort to fund or resource a Delaware River Basin comprehensive climate impact study.
  • Work with DRBC staff and partners to organize a Delaware River Basin Climate Forum (i.e., technical conference) and provide the commission with a recommendation regarding the frequency of such events for sharing climate science focused on the Delaware River Basin.
