Description
 
The effects of climate change on water resources have already been observed and are expected to continue. The Dept. of Defenseńˇ╗s (DODńˇ╗s) U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) and the Dept. of the Interiorńˇ╗s (DOIńˇ╗s) Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) own and operate key water resource management infrastructure, such as dams and reservoirs. Adaptation -- adjustments in natural or human systems to a new or changing environment that exploits beneficial opportunities or moderates negative effects -- can be used to help manage the risks to vulnerable resources. This report examines (1) actions taken by the Corps and Reclamation since 2009 to assess and respond to the potential effects of climate change on water infrastructure; and (2) challenges, if any, faced by the Corps and Reclamation in assessing and responding to the potential effects of climate change on water infrastructure, and the steps the agencies are taking to address them. Table and figures. This is a print on demand report.
