dc.descriptionRandy Ray interviewed by Mitchell Schaefer
dc.description.abstractIn this interview, Randy Ray discusses his role as Executive Director for the Central Colorado Water Conservancy District regarding the 2013 floods in Northern Colorado. Ray's work for Central is to augment the river depletions created by pumping and consuming local alluvial ground water for agricultural purposes. His office qualified for FEMA monetary aid in the wake of the flood--they had lost a fair amount of electronic measuring equipment--but only after some confusion about their status as a local government. Ray stresses the importance of forming pre-existing relationships with local, state, and federal agencies involved with water management and rivers to ease communication during a disaster. His office offered their community aid during the flood by providing their storage pits as diversion areas and guiding local folks to state and federal assistance.
