Quantifying climate change impacts on water resources

In collaboration with NHI and NCAR, and the California Department of Water Resources (DWR), SEI US has explored the use of WEAP to quantify climate-change driven impacts to water resource allocation in the Sacramento River Basin in Northern California.

This work is one component of an EPA funded project Climate Change Information to Affect Decision Outcomes in the San Francisco Bay Watershed and may result in WEAP results being featured in California's Water Plan Update for 2010, an official planning document for the state. WEAP training was held for the DWR in Sacramento, CA in July 2008.
