Sarah Null, Assistant Professor, Department of Watershed Sciences, Utah State University. [email protected] Climate change, population growth, aging infrastructure, and changing societal values alter how water must be managed in the 21st Century. This talk summarizes recent research modeling hydroclimate change for urban, agricultural, and environmental water users and highlights potential adaptations. As snowmelt-dominated runoff shifts to rainfall-dominated runoff in mountain regions, streamflows peak in winter instead of spring. This affects irrigators and some municipal water users with season-dependent water rights, including the City and County of San Francisco, and water users in the Rio-Grande and South Platte River Compacts. Instream flows for environmental protection will likely be disproportionally reduced with climate change. Dam removal is also evaluated as a potential river restoration approach. Results quantify fish habitat gains from removing dams against water supply and hydropower production losses, highlighting the declining value of reservoir storage when systems are limited by precipitation. Improving water conveyance can sometimes substitute for water storage in storage-rich watersheds. Results are presented for California’s Tuolumne watershed, with some preliminary results for Utah. These findings suggest that hydroclimatic uncertainty can be partially accounted for with simple modifications to existing operating rules for reservoirs, though other approaches are also likely needed. Sarah is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Watershed Sciences at Utah State University. She received her BA in economics from UCLA, and both her masters and PhD in geography at UC Davis. She worked as a postdoctoral scholar at UC Davis’ Center for Watershed Sciences for 3 years prior to coming to Utah State University. Sarah’s research interests include water resources systems analysis for people and ecosystems, climate change impacts and adaptations for water resources, stream temperature modeling and monitoring, and improving information-sharing between policy-makers, water managers, and researchers. Field studies, mathematical models, and systems analysis are methods she uses to improve understanding of systems and explore promising solutions to problems.

Water is critical to America's social, economic, and ecological well-being. Yet, more than 70 percent of the western United States is in the grip of an ongoing drought that shows no signs of ending. The water crisis is as much an economic issue as an environmental one, and demands focused national attention. On Oct. 20, 2014, the Hamilton Project at Brookings and the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment hosted a forum and released new papers highlighting opportunities for improving water management in the United States in the face of scarce water supplies.

At COP 21 in Paris, Parties to the UNFCCC reached a landmark agreement to combat climate change. The agreement which underscores the importance of global collaboration allows for the charting of a new course in efforts to combat climate change. Among the goals …to keep global temperature rise below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels; to provide funding to assist vulnerable countries mitigate and adapt to climate change as well as an agreed framework for the Warsaw International Mechanism on Loss and Damage. At COP 22 in Marrakech the goal is to iron out and develop a rule book for the implementation of the Paris agreement. Attention is also being placed on water. The first Water Day at the COP was heralded a few days ago. It highlighted the relationship between climate change and water security. An issue tightly woven with food security.

Stanford University professor Noah Diffenbaugh discusses new results published in the peer-reviewed journal Nature Climate Change: Snow accumulation is critical for water availability in the Northern Hemisphere1, 2, raising concern that global warming could have important impacts on natural and human systems in snow-dependent regions. Although regional hydrologic changes have been observed, the time of emergence of extreme changes in snow accumulation and melt remains a key unknown for assessing climate-change impacts. We find that the CMIP5 global climate model ensemble exhibits an imminent shift towards low snow years in the Northern Hemisphere, with areas of western North America, northeastern Europe and the Greater Himalaya showing the strongest emergence during the near-term decades and at 2 °C global warming. The occurrence of extremely low snow years becomes widespread by the late twenty-first century, as do the occurrences of extremely high early-season snowmelt and runoff (implying increasing flood risk), and extremely low late-season snowmelt and runoff (implying increasing water stress). Our results suggest that many snow-dependent regions of the Northern Hemisphere are likely to experience increasing stress from low snow years within the next three decades, and from extreme changes in snow-dominated water resources if global warming exceeds 2 °C above the pre-industrial baseline.

Dr. Lyndon Gyurek describes how EPCOR is assessing the potential of climate change on the supply of drinking water to Edmonton and the rest of the Capital Region of Alberta. In a study of tree ring data matched with a 100 years of flow data, the past fluctuations of water supply in the North Saskatchewan River are projected back to 1060 A.D. The tree ring to hydrology modelling projects that flows in paleo-history have been outside the range (higher and lower) than the current 100 year record. Extended periods (in the order of 30 to 50 years) were projected. The cycles of wet and dry cycles could be related to El Nino and the Pacific Decadal Oscillation. When climate change is added to the paleo-hydrological trends stresses on water supply become apparent in a watershed where supply has been taken for granted. Dr. Lyndon Gyurek is Senior Manager, Environmenta at EPCOR Water Services. Dr. Gyurek has been active in the field on environmental engineering with a focus on water for more than 15 years. He completed his doctorate in Environmental Engineering from the University of Alberta in 1997. He is a founding member of the Alberta Low Impact Development Partnership (ALIDP) and past board member.

Building resilient freshwater systems is one of the focus areas of the Pacific Adaptation to Climate Change (PACC) programme. Since 2009, six participating countries (Tuvalu, Tokelau, Tonga, Nauru, Niue, and the Marshall Islands) have developed climate-resilient water systems by upgrading water infrastructure to improve water capture and storage, increasing the options for sourcing water, and improving water quality. Supported by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP), the Pacific Adaptation to Climate Change (PACC) programme is the first major climate change adaptation initiative in the Pacific region. This programme laid the groundwork for more resilient Pacific communities that can cope with climate variability today, and climate change tomorrow. This short video, narrated by renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, highlights the PACC projects that are working to improve access to an adequate supply of clean water.

The Department of the Interior and Bureau of Reclamation have released the 2016 SECURE Water Report and interactive basin-by-basin visualization tool following the World Water Day White House Summit. The SECURE Water Report identifies climate change as a growing risk to Western water management and cites warmer temperatures, changes to precipitation, snowpack and the timing and quality of streamflow runoff across major river basins as threats to water sustainability. Water supply, quality and operations; hydropower; groundwater resources; flood control; recreation; and fish, wildlife and other ecological resources in the Western states remain at risk. The report, which responds to requirements under the SECURE Water Act of 2009, shows several increased risks to western United States water resources during the 21st century. This is the second report produced for Congress. The first report was produced in 2011. The report and visualization tool are available at www.usbr.gov/climate/secure/
