Idaho Climate and Water Resource Forecasts for the 2004 Water Year

September 16, 2003 - 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Climate Impacts Group Annual Fall Forecast Meetings

Every fall, the Climate Impacts Group at the University of Washington hosts workshops highlighting the seasonal climate forecast and water resource outlook for the Pacific Northwest for the upcoming water year.

The information presented at these meetings provides public and private resource managers the opportunity to consider how projected seasonal streamflow levels may affect operational decisions in the Pacific Northwest.

The meetings also provide the opportunity to learn about new water resource forecasting techniques and tools.

This year's Idaho meeting was in Boise on September 16, 2003. A second meeting focusing primarily on the Columbia River and urban water supplies was held on October 14, 2003 in Kelso, Washington. For more information on the Kelso meeting, click here.
