On Thursday, June 25, 2020, Arizona’s Lower Basin Drought Contingency Plan (“LBDCP”) Steering Committee (aka the “Drought Contingency Plan Committee”) is scheduled to reconvene and take on a new name and a new task.  The LBDCP will become the Arizona Reconsultation Committee (the “ARC”) to develop a consensus among Arizona’s Colorado River water users regarding new guidelines that the Secretary of Interior is required to develop before the end of 2026 for the long-term management of the Colorado River system.  The new guidelines would replace the 2007 Colorado River Interim Guidelines for Lower Basin Shortages and the Coordinated Operations for Lake Powell and Lake Mead (the “Interim Guidelines”).

The June 25th meeting is scheduled to take place via livestream from 10 am until noon.  More information is available on the websites for the Arizona Department of Water Resources and the Central Arizona Project.
