OTT CAST: The Future of Groundwater in the U.S. West

The drought that has gripped much of the U.S. West has been a long-running dry stretch for the last 1200 years, a sign of both environmental and human impact. As 2022 shapes up to extend the ‘megadrought,’ researchers are finding the situation is unlikely to improve in the near future.

In our debut hydrology podcast, guest speakers Cristina Windsor, Business Development Manager for Groundwater & Irrigation at OTT HydroMet and Dave Colvin, Groundwater Team Leader at LRE Water, share their expertise and weigh-in on:

  • Current drought conditions in the U.S. West influenced by climate and public impact
  • The role of groundwater in aquifer storage and recovery
  • Defining drought and shifting the conversation to forward-thinking monitoring methods
