SAWS Hosts Climate Change Seminar

Jeremy Rice

Freese and Nichols University hosted a Drought and Climate Change Seminar at the San Antonio Water System (SAWS) office on Monday, May 11, repeating the success of last year’s Dallas course.

Water Resource Planning Group Manager Tom Gooch, atmospheric scientist Dr. Katharine Hayhoe and Texas State Climatologist Dr. John Nielsen-Gammon presented again and many of our clients attended, including SAWS, Austin Water Utility, Guadalupe Blanco River Authority, Texas General Land Office and New Braunfels Utilities.

Trooper Smith welcomed the group and Dr. Nielsen-Gammon and Dr. Hayhoe made their presentations. Following lunch, the two debated preparing for climate change or natural variability, and Tom closed the session with his presentation, A Hydrologist’s Perspect​ive on Drought and Climate Change.
