Recognizing and responding to the changing climate in water resources, the Bureau of Reclamation recently launched a massive effort to redirect the agency's traditional mission. Reclamation will devote its expertise to conserving and managing water and power resources in advanced, innovative ways. As federal agencies such as Reclamation undertake change on national and regional levels, the priorities and programs of state and local groups may, in turn, be affected. Increased coordination and cooperation between all levels of government and concerned parties can ensure that wise management of valuable resources continues despite a variety of constraints.
