Notice of conference call.
The Adaptive Management Program (AMP) was implemented as a result of the Record of Decision on the Operation of Glen Canyon Dam Final Environmental Impact Statement to comply with consultation requirements of the Grand Canyon Protection Act (P.L. 102-575) of 1992. The AMP provides an organization and process to ensure the use of scientific information in decision making concerning Glen Canyon Dam operations and protection of the affected resources consistent with the Grand Canyon Protection Act. The AMP has been organized and includes a federal advisory committee (AMWG), a technical work group (TWG), a monitoring and research center, and independent review panels. The TWG is a subcommittee of the AMWG and provides technical advice and information for the AMWG to act upon.
The AMWG will conduct the following conference call:
Thursday, January 29, 2004. The conference call will begin at 9 a.m. and conclude at 11 a.m. Mountain Time.
Agenda: The purpose of the conference call will be to: (1) seek feedback from the AMWG on Western Area Power Administration's proposal to modify the experimental flows during January-March of 2004; and (2) identify proposed changes in the use of remote sensing to monitor resources in the Colorado River ecosystem beginning in 2004 and seek feedback from the AMWG.
Due to a need to present the above information for discussion at the Adaptive Management Work Group Meeting on March 3-4, 2004, this notice may be published in a shorter time period than normally required by the Federal Advisory Committee Act. However, an e-mail message will be sent by Reclamation to those persons who have expressed interest in the Glen Canyon Dam Adaptive Management program to allow them full participation on the conference call.
