|Report on the National Water Policy Event: We've 'Been There' But Haven't 'Done That' . . . It was more like 'Night of the Stars' than an 'Evening of the WaterWonks'. Jim Thebaut and The Chronicles Group hosted the National Water Policy Event last night and many of the water illuminati (glitterati?) were there - names that are not recognizable to the general public but well-known to water nerds such as yours truly: Rep. John Linder (R-GA), Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR), Jim Thebaut, Rep. Jim Costa (D-CA), Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA), Patricia Mulroy (SNWA), Timothy Brick (MWD), Dr. Brad Udall (WWA at U of CO), Mike Connor (USBR), Dr. Gene Whitney (CRS), Lena Fowler (Coconino County - AZ), Dr. Erik Webb (SNL), Donald Smith (MWH Global), Dr. Jerome Delli Priscoli (USACE-IWR), Steve Stockton (USACE), H. David Nahai (LADWP), and Peter Silva (USEPA). And there were more. . .
