Sun River, MT Diversion Dam. 195 ft tall. Inspecting 103 year old concrete and searching for a pot-o-gold. #tastetherainbow #ropeaccess #ropeaccesstechnician #sprat #bureauofreclamation #damsafety #dam #irrigation #petzl #sterlingropes
Had the pleasure of traveling to Kalispell, MT for work the past two days and was blessed with this view on top of Hungry Horse Dam. This dam contains roughly 3,086,200 cubic yards of concrete and has one of the highest morning glory hole structures in the world🌎 • • #waterfacts #dam #reclamation #bureauofreclamation #departmentoftheinterior #hungryhorsereservoir #montana #montanaexplored #travel #adventure
Nerding out on geospatial data science at the University of Washington this week has me thinking about our dying western rivers. Sidenote, the Grand Canyon Monitoring and Research Center and the Glen Canyon Dam Adaptive Management Program were was just defunded...#yay #fun
Happy Friday! May the weekend adventure begin 🙂
Fishing season is almost over. I really dig this apple pen w/procreate. I like the efficiency and sensitivity. Heres a #wip drawing for a work project. #illustration #salmon #amor22 #illustrator #bureauofreclamation #sketch #digitalart #splash #idaho #pacificnorthwest
Standing in the reservoir at the north end of Cle Elum Lake looking south we see water marks on the bank and further in the distance a landslide at the tree line that is still visible. . . . #retrowreck #cleelumlake #bank #landslide #reservoir #cleelumriver #manmade #bureauofreclamation #washingtonstate #cascades #waterheight #erosion #summer #videoeditor #filmeditor #lakebed #pnw #pacnw #depth #wherelumixgoes #gh5
Great talks at the Native Fish of the Los Angeles River Forum this evening. Topics included: NMFS recovery actions and opportunities, designing ecosystem features for flood control and increased habitat value, an overview of Arroyo Seco’s rainbow trout restoration program, fish assemblages and water temperatures of the LA River, as well as habitat assessments and management action recommendations. #nmfs #bureauofreclamation #stillwatersciences #arroyosecofoundation #uccooperativeextension #steelhead #omykiss #resilientfishresilientwaters #restoringresilience #LARiver #arroyoseco #emeraldnecklace #headwaterstoocean
Riding bikes across the Continental Divide....through the mountains. Tunnel inspection. 12 miles round trip peddling in chest wadders. #dontvideoanddrive #tunnel #water #coloradowater #bigholes #trekbikes #bureauofreclamation #miniboombox #sorebutt #nofunatwork #lupinelights
This tunnel was created with a tunnel boring machine. The mixture of geology 3,000 ft underground is the most beautiful artwork I have even seen. #bureauofreclamation #fryinpanriver #tunnel #geology #geologyrocks #granite
In LV for one day to attend a wedding. No Elvis sightings. We took a drive to see the Hoover Dam instead. Lake Mead levels are 50 meters lower than normal. Stunning and terrifying. #manmade #hooverdam #concrete #hydroelectric #coloradoriver #artdeco #wildwest #bureauofreclamation #110F #lasvegas #drought #summer2018
When you come to a fork in the tunnel, take it? Nast Tunnel inspection, 2 miles in, 3,000 ft underground. #bureauofreclamation #water #coloradowater #tunnel #civilengineering #fryingpanriver
When you're 1 mile into a tunnel, 3,000 ft underground, that should have a flat floor and damage has caused holes deeper than your muck boots. 45 degree water. #bureauofreclamation #coloradowater #muckboots #watersecurity #tunnel #rockymountains #keepontruckin #cleanfeet #lupinelights #kaskhelmets
Federal Government Weighs in on California’s Misguided Ideas About Water The United States Department of the Interior, Bureau of Reclamation, wrote a comment to California State Water Resources Control Board (CSWRCB) Chair, Felicia Marcus, on July 27th. This was in response to the CSWRCB’s amendments to the Water Quality Control Plan for the San Francisco Bay/Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Estuary. The comment submitted by the Bureau of Reclamation urged the board to reconsider their amendments and postpone the public meeting scheduled for August 21-22, 2018.

The federally endangered southwest willow flycatcher. These tiny little eggs represent the next generation. The next generation with an uncertain future due to habitat loss. Take the time to enjoy the little things around you. Some day they may no longer be there. I’m going to unload a bunch of #NM pics. I have always jokingly said that my dream job consisted of being covered in dirt, sunburnt, dehydrated and wondering around wild spaces looking for critters. After this summer I am even more dedicated to that dream. It’s all I want. #fitzbew #wifl #TorC #bureauofreclamation

American Indian high-scalers, Boulder Canyon Project along the Colorado River. They were tasked with the difficult job of descending into the canyon to remove loose rocks along the wall. Dedicated in 1935, the Boulder Dam was renamed the Hoover Dam in 1947. . . . #bouldercanyon #coloradoriver #americanindian #indian #highscaler #cliff #canyon #bor #bureauofreclamation #reclamation #water #dam #americanwest #photomerica #historicplaces #historicphoto #usa #ushistory #nevada #arizona #blackcanyon #hooverdam #herberthoover #fdr #lakemead #reclamationservice #historic #historicalpix
A wonderful spot at #clarkcanyonreservoir Thank you #bureauofreclamation for a great free spot! Thanks to #campendium for helping us find it! Plus a moose for our friend George.
Living in Southwest you hear a lot of talk about how much the water level has gone down in Lake Mead. While the water in the lake may look low, it's actually up from levels in the recent past. - Want to take a look at the numbers for yourself?

A throwback pic to a 2009 trip to Hoover Dam. Water level was low just as it is again today. Some day, in the near future, this place will only be a concrete landmark with no water in sight. . . #hooverdam #nevada #arizona #dams #lowwater #traveltheworld #travelarizona #travelnevada #photgraphy #landscapes #concretearchitecture #statelines #bureauofreclamation #artdeco #bouldercity #hydropower
A tiny bull trout (Salvelinus confluentus) hides in the rocks along a streambank to avoid being eaten by predators. It will emerge at night to feed in safety. Large parts of this stream dry up in the summer from a combination of drought and man-made changes to the stream. Until the stream can be restored so it will retain water year-round, an assortment of biologists, technicians, and college students net fish and move them in buckets to deeper water every summer. If this small fish survives, it will grow into an apex predator up to 30" long. • #salvelinusconfluentus #bulltrout #wdfw #troutbum #keepemwet #trout #midcolumbiafisheries #washingtonexplored #conservation #streamrestoration #fishnerd #fieldwork #fisheries #biology #riverside #riversnorkeling #endangeredspecies #watershed #fish #bureauofreclamation #myodfw #ariverrunsthroughit #optoutside #outdoorproject #wander_washington #swimdrinkfish #underwaterphotography

The Columbia River Basin Project, completed in the 1950s, is a feat of engineering that provides irrigation to over one million acres of land in WA #bureauofreclamation #grandcoulee
6 mile RT hike to Interlaken Historical Site off the Colorado Trail in Twin Lakes. A resort built in 1879, and after almost a century of neglect was stabilized by the Bureau of Reclamation. Interior shots are of Dexter’s private cabin, which is free and open to the public. #interlakenresort #twinlakescolorado
