Description: The Upper Rio Grande Water Operations Model assists water managers in flood control operations, water accounting, and evaluation of water operations alternatives. Six Federal agencies entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in 1996 to develop a unified water operations model and to coordinate model development activities with other Rio Grande Basin interests. The operations model performs multi-contractor accounting and forecasting to simulate daily storage and delivery operations. The model was further refined and tested to review system operations of the Rio Grande Basin. The water operations review began in FY 2000 with a joint lead agency agreement and public scoping meetings. Between FY 2001 and 2005 interdisciplinary teams described in detail the basin's existing environment and current storage and delivery operations. The Corps and several participating agencies coordinated with the public, Native American tribes, and other basin interests to formulate draft alternative operations that are within existing authorities. The final EIS will be published in April of FY 2007 with decisions from the Federal agencies based on the review process and the EIS Record of Decision. The Corps will continue to implement the decisions with detailed NPEA and analysis.
