Abstract
  • A report to the US Army Corps of Engineers Portland District Office.
  • Regional warming and changing precipitation patterns are affecting water supply with implications for water management under future climate change. The US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Portland District manages dams, reservoirs, and projects (e.g. fish facilities) in the Willamette and Rogue River Basins and must balance multiple objectives of providing reservoir storage space to minimize flood risk, refilling reservoirs for conservation storage, meeting environmental objectives, and maximizing hydropower. This balancing act may become more challenging under future climate conditions. This report examines observed changes in temperature, precipitation, snowpack, and streamflow in the Willamette and Rogue River Basins and provides projections of future changes in these variables based on global climate model simulations.
