Announcing the Reservoir Sedimentation Management Webinar Series

Announcing the Reservoir Sedimentation Management Webinar Series


The nation’s 90,000 dams and reservoirs help ensure the stability of water and energy supplies and flood risk management. However, reservoir storage capacity, essential to meeting these purposes, has been declining as reservoirs fill with clay, silt, sand, gravel, and cobble sediment, in a process known as reservoir sedimentation.

In this webinar series, sponsored by CIRES Education & Outreach and CIRES Western Water Assessment, the Subcommittee on Sedimentation’s National Reservoir Sedimentation and Sustainability Team presents sustainable solutions to reservoir sediment management.

The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation recently released a short introduction to Reservoir Sedimentation put together by Reclamation and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (link here).

Approximately one to two weeks after each webinar, a permanent link to the recorded webinar will be posted.
