For this special event, Steve Malloch, a Principal with Western Water Futures, will be presenting his recent work on dam removal and a dam removal funding project. Steve Malloch is a practitioner of political hydrology – working at the intersection of policy, law and technical water issues. Steve is trained in hydrology and law, and has worked as a hydrogeologist, lawyer and lobbyist. He brings technical, legal and political tools to bear on the problems of improving the environmental performance of large water systems, especially water supply, irrigation and flood control projects in the Western US, and on the looming problems of adapting to the impacts of climate change on water infrastructure and use.
