This week on 'The Driller Newscast', we spotlight critical water conservation efforts. We kick off with the Department of the Interior's allocation of $242 million aimed at bolstering water storage projects to enhance drought resiliency in Western states. Additionally, we examine the initiatives under consideration by the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology to advance groundwater conservation strategies. A feature segment addresses the contrasting proposals from Upper and Lower Basin states concerning the Colorado River's water use and discusses potential federal interventions in groundwater management.

 Also covered in this episode:

  • Department of Interior's $242 million funding release for drought resiliency.
  • Solicitation of public feedback on water conservation by the President's science council.
  • Analysis of Colorado River Basin state proposals for managing surface water resources.
