I just heard that Bill Steele passed away in March of this year. This is a photo of he and I from August 2017 at the Urban Water Institute Conference. Bill retired from the Bureau of Reclamation not to long ago after 38 years. So very sad indeed. #bureauofreclamation

The Hoover Dam impounds Lake Mead, the largest reservoir in the US. It was built during the Great Depression and took 5 years to be completed. The Hoover Dam provides hydroelectric power to parts of Nevada, Arizona, and California. #hooverdam #bureauofreclamation

An Archaeologist, a Recreational Planner and a Realty Specialist all walk into a bar... I mean a Dam... 😁 Our lil crew from the Ephrata Office touring Arrowrock Dam today! Some wonderful ladies 😊 #bureauofreclamation #arrowheaddam #opportunities #adventures #discoverboise #blessed

Wyoming Water: Irrigation and the Bureau of Reclamation. On Tuesday, October 16th, from 11:30am - 1pm, retired Shoshone Irrigation District Manager, Bryant Startin, will discuss the government involvement in water management.

#BureauofReclamation is launching a new prize challenge seeking new or improved techniques to remove sediment from #reservoirs in a cost-effective manner. #Sedimentation in reservoirs can be a significant problem by limiting the active life of reservoirs by reducing available #water storage capacity or #flood control benefits. #Sedimentation also impacts dam outlets, reservoir water intakes, water quality, recreation, upstream flood stage, and downstream habitat. This is a theoretical challenge where solvers can provide ideas on sediment collection, transport, or delivery to the downstream river. In a theoretical challenge the only thing required is a white paper. Solvers are asked to submit their idea with detailed descriptions, drawings, illustrations, specifications, supporting data or literature, and any other things that would be needed to bring the idea to practice.

More vacation #content #flashbackfriday style to when we took that dam tour (and are halfway down the dam looking out a vent) 🤓
Reliable long-term municipal and industrial water supply is no longer a pipe dream. #BureauOfReclamation #NavajoGallupWaterSupplyProjects #OscarRenda #SouthlandHoldings #BuildingGreatThings #ProtectMyFamily
Last week we had the pleasure of attending the 1st Annual WIN Workshop at the Brackish Groundwater National Desalination Research Facility in Alamogordo, NM. #BGNDRF is a focal point for developing technologies for the #desalination of #brackish and impaired #groundwater found in the inland states. This facility brings together researchers from other Federal government agencies, universities, the private sector, research organizations, and state and local agencies to work collaboratively. Thank you, Randy Shaw, Facility Manager for coordinating the workshop, we look forward to attending next year. #BureauOfReclamation #txwater

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 🙂

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

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?
