5-Year Cloud Seeding Project for the Walker Basin for Water Years 2011-2015

Affiliation(s) PI Project period Funded by
DAS Huggins, Arlen W 07/01/2010 - 06/30/2015 Walker River Irrigation District

Project Description

Cloud seeding operations and research to be conducted in the Walker River Basin over a 5-year period between water years 2011 and 2015. The proposed work is focused on increasing flow into the Walker River from cloud seeding operations in the upper portion of the Walker Basin during five winter seasons. The benefit of the seeding operations will be evaluated using a hydrologic model developed specifically by DRI for predicting stream flow for the Walker River.
